    Romance in a Steel Mill Town, between Two Great Actors

    Greer Garson and Gregory Peck fulfil all the requirements of two great romantic leads in this steel mill romance between a maidservant and industrialist's son. They are noble and yet fun to be with, relaxed and yet focussed on causes higher than themselves. You could say that some of the story is predictable, but then if you've read this, or any other, review, then you have a good idea as to what it's going to be about! * Personally, I don't read reviews to decide about watching a film; I read them afterwards to see what other people think.
