Betty White is always great, and she must be 96 now? Sweet romantic, and patriotic movie that is very touching.

Enjoy this heartfelt movie, starring Betty White, about a new war bride waiting for her husband to return. Also consider it family friendly.

Refreshing morals and values. Betty White does an outstanding job acting through a range of emotions. Yes the movie is Hallmark and yes it is predictable, yet, it held my attention and I enjoyed it

Good family movie, enjoyed watching it. Gives strong values of relationship and keeping one's word. Also strong values of love.

This is one of Jennifer Love Hewitt's greatest performances. The story was great. Get your popcorn and your tissues.

Loved, loved, loved this movie. It's a wonderful love story without being a fluffy love story. Make sure to have the kleenex nearby.

Wonderful story and a tribute to all who have been through a similar situation during the war. A reminder, a box of tissues will be needed for this one!

This is a 2011 American drama based on the novel by James Michael Pratt of the same name, previously titled The Last Valentine---a 1998 New York Times and USA Today bestseller.  The story follows Susan Allison (a TV journalist) who works on a profile of Caroline Thomas.  The interview with Caroline reveals that for 66 years she has had no information about her husband from the Department of the Navy.  With the help of a United States Senator (Susan did an unrelated story on the him) who puts pressure on the Navy, they locate the Billings family, whose now deceased father Jeff was a gunner on Lt. Thomas' airplane.  From a surviving letter by Jeff to his wife we hear the account of the crash and of Morang, a Filipino guerilla, who rescued two wounded crash survivors.  Susan turns to her boyfriend Andrew for help because he still has connections to the Philippines where Lt. Thomas was last seen alive.  Putting past hard feelings over his breakup with Susan aside, Andrew manages to locate the elderly Morang, who told that Lt. Thomas joined the Filipino guerillas and fought the Japanese deep behind enemy lines.  During a patrol, Lt. Thomas was killed by a Japanese sniper while selflessly trying to rescue a little boy.  Morang reveals he knows where Lt. Thomas's body is buried.  Thus the U.S. Navy goes to the grave site and returns Lt. Thomas' remains and personal effects to the United States.  Caroline is handed Neil's dog-tags, watch, and wallet, which contains her valentine to him. It is actually a heart-warming tear-jerker with double romances.  Find out two love stories by yourself.
