The term rom-com didn’t exist when Garland made her first non-musical film but there’s no better way to describe this charming WWII-set romance. From the meet-cute in Grand Central Station with Robert Walker’s wide-eyed soldier on 48-hour leave to the race to get married before their time together runs out you see a playful side to Garland rarely glimpsed on screen.
