Since You Went Away
Since You Went Away ★★★ ½ 1944
An American family copes with the tragedy, heartache and shortages of wartime in classic megatribute to the home front. Be warned: very long and bring your hankies. Colbert is superb, as is the photography. John Derek unobtrusively made his film debut, as an extra. 172m/B VHS, DVD .
