To Each His Own (1946) – Olivia de Havilland’s heartbreaking story

On TCM Sun 9/18/16- To Each His Own (1946) – In World War II London, fire wardens Josephine “Jody” Norris (Oscar winning here Olivia de Havilland) shares a heartbreaking story told in flashback with Lord Desham (Roland Culver) about her romance during World War I with a US pilot played by John Lund and the child she gave birth to.  A very moving tale with sensitive direction by Mitchell Leisen, a screenplay by Charles Brackett and Jacques Thery as well as a Victor Young score. A tear jerker to the very end and yet another virtuoso performance by Olivia.
