I'll Be Seeing You -- November 11, 2019
Happy Veterans Day, everyone. David O Selznick produced I'll Be Seeing You, which starred Ginger Rogers, Joseph Cotton, and Shirley Temple.  Ginger Rogers and Joseph Cotton's characters both have secrets, which they keep from each other.  Cotton played a veteran sergeant who has been treated for shell shock.  Rogers is a woman who was convicted of manslaughter, who gets a furlough to spend Christmas with her aunt and uncle.  They fall in love after meeting on a train.

One of my favorite scenes is when Shirley Temple's character brings home a Second Lieutenant who is fresh out of training.  First Sergeant Cotton salutes him, and the 2LT, played by John Derek, says something like "I should be saluting you."
