Editorial Reviews

During World War II, Navy Lt. Neil Thomas bids his pregnant young wife, Caroline, farewell at Union Station. But even before their son is born, Neil's plane goes down in the Pacific and he's declared missing in action. Caroline is devastated. Neil was Caroline's one great love... and for the next 65 years Caroline (Betty White) returns to Union Station on the anniversary of the day they said goodbye forever (Valentine's Day), to salute the memory of her brave and beloved husband. Eventually, a TV journalist (Jennifer Love Hewitt) learns of the touching story and sets out to investigate just what happened to Neil during the war. Neil and Caroline's grandson encourages his initially-reluctant grandmother to cooperate; the TV reporter and the grandson fall in love themselves.

5.0 out of 5 stars An emotional journey--excellent acting by Betty White February 2, 2011
Format:DVD
As the latest addition to the Hallmark Hall of Fame Library, this movie does not disappoint. Hewitt plays Susan Allison, a young woman who is a human interest reporter. She is assigned to cover a story about a woman named Caroline (Betty White) who sent her husband, Neil, off to WWII on Valentines day many decades ago. As she was patiently keeping the home fires burning she gave birth to their son. When her husband was reported MIA a year after shipping out, she initially hoped to find him among the returning wounded in the veterans hospital, but in time she just visited every week to read to the soldiers, a tradition she had continued through the years. She had also continued to visit Union Station, where she had said goodbye to Neil, every Valentine's Day, for 60+ years. The story of her courtship and marriage is told through flashback as she is being interviewed for the news story. Susan was initially hesitant about the whole thing, but as she becomes involved with Caroline, she also becomes involved with her grandson. He is a handsome young physical therapist, whose perspective on life is a stark contrast to that of her own boyfriend, Andrew, who recently proposed. As Susan becomes more immersed in the story of Caroline Thomas she puts her job on the line in order to try and discover what happened to Neil Thomas all those years ago.

The story is a great tribute to those who served in WWII, and to those left behind that rallied together to support the troops. It is an emotional journey as you follow Caroline's memories from "love at first sight" to the last sight of her love. Betty White is incredible and believable as the woman who had faced life with courage in spite of her suffering. The entire cast does justice to this moving and inspiring story. It is family friendly, though the scene of some of the war action near the end of the movie may be too intense for small children.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tissues required! February 6, 2011
Format:DVD
This was one of the best movies I've ever seen! Betty White is an incredibly talented woman. Whether a comedy or drama, she always brings it home and never disappoints. I went through a dozen tissues while watching this wonderful story that was so well written and well acted. I'm going to buy it for my Mom for Valentines Day. However, I found it to be cheaper on the
Hallmark website than on Amazon. If you like the Notebook, you will love this movie! Buy it, own it, watch it, treasure it! Enjoy but don't forget the tissues!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Lost Valentine February 2, 2011
Format:DVD
Hallmark has produced magnificent TV shows over the years, but this has to be one of the all time best. It was magnificent, touching, patriotic, and a 'national treasure'. I hope Hallmark releases it on TV again - but earlier than 9:00 EST or PST so the younger generation can watch it. It was on a Sunday night. Betty White was just superb. An Emmy for sure. It should be sold in Hallmark stores and through other outlets.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely wonderful! January 31, 2011
Format:DVD
Educational: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I watched this on CBS last evening and it was a beautifully made movie about a newly married Navy man who had to leave his young pregnant bride to fight in the Philippines during WW II. It was especially meaningful to me as my dad, who died this past August, served in the Philippines during that same war. While the young wife kept busy with their new son, she was troubled by the too often times letters were delivered to some of her neighbors informing them of the death or mia of their loved ones, always grateful she wasn't among them. But then the unthinkable happens when she, too, gets one of those letters. I don't want to give away the whole story but suffice it to say, I loved it and it brought tears more than once. Near the end was especially meaningful and emotional for me. Betty White and the entire cast were superb. Following the movie, I immediately went to the Hallmark web site and ordered it. I highly recommend the film.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Deeply Touching and Romantic Movie November 30, 2011
Format:DVD
This movie was a gift and we watched it for the first time this afternoon; my wife and I were both deeply moved by this movie and inspired by the solid values it so ably presents. This is the story of a WW II romance that tracks the experience of so many young couples of the era. The flashbacks to that time were effective and brought back many memories.

During the Second World War my wife and I were still in public school and both of us recall the various activities that involved the civilian population during that time. The music was all very familiar as were the references to collecting scrap metal for the war effort, the victory gardens that almost everyone in our neighborhood had, and the flags with stars draped in the windows showing the number of family members away in the armed forces.

All of this is firmly engraved in my memory and this movie brought them back with force as this tender love story was told. The settings, the ambience, the music are all effectively done to give the viewer a small glimpse of life in the 1940's.

The story focuses on a WW II widow who had a special method for remembering her missing husband; this comes to the attention of a TV station who decides to feature her in a TV program. The widow is marvelously played by Betty White who brings a tender and touching conviction to the role. The young TV reporter, played by the lovely Jennifer Love Hewitt, is at first skeptical of the assignment but begins to develop a loving concern for the elderly widow and decides to carry the assignment on to its conclusion.

The movie switches from the contemporary story to the WW II romance with a series of flashbacks. It is these flashbacks that so effectively convey the feelings of the WW II era.
