Storyline

To Each His Own  During World War I, small-town girl Josephine Norris has an illegitimate son by an itinerant pilot. After a scheme to adopt him ends up giving him to another family, she devotes her life to loving him from afar.

A fine drama of devotion and a mother’s love

 

To Each His Own  What a gentle, tender story! This is a Romance ‘par excellence’ handled with maturity, insight, and simply told in flashbacks which take us back to earlier years, into the realities of life for a young woman who loses her true love during wartime (WW1) then finds herself unmarried and bringing a child into the world whom she must give up afterwards due to a twist in circumstances. It’s a truly wonderful role for Olivia de Havilland, as Jodie Norris, and I can’t think of anyone else who could play it so convincingly.

Roland Culver, in his supporting role as Lord Desham, provides a substantial backup for the elderly ‘Jodie’ who meets him rather abrasively during WW2 days but later relates to him the personal tragedy in her youth. He has the presence of mind and determination to see that old wrongs are set aright — all of which leads to one of the most beautiful endings to a film anyone could wish for.

It’s a film that poignantly reflects the war years when so many lives were uprooted, hopes dashed, yet carried on with courage. I wish they made more films like this one, it’s a gem.


Best Undiscovered Movie Worth Finding!

I found this web site so I could find this movie! This story was so captivating and Olivia’s performance was so endearing that I was glued to the television at 2am and didn’t care! For those of you who love the tales of tragic love denied and then bestowed – this is one of the best kept secrets of classic movies.
