Random Harvest (film) - Wikipedia

Village fans of movies from the 1930’s and 40’s are starting a new movie group. If Ninotchka or Captain Blood or Random Harvest are among your favorite films, you’ll be right at home! In addition to discussing the films, we will also talk about the scores and the wonderful composers of the era.The group will meet from 5:00-6:00 PM on Zoom the first Tuesday of the month.

November’s movie is Random Harvest (1942).

In Random Harvest, a veteran of World War I, Charles Rainier (Ronald Colman) has lost all memory of his life before the war. Left to wander, Rainier meets a showgirl, Paula (Greer Garson), with whom he falls in love. Rainier and Paula are soon happily married, but when Rainier travels out of town, a car hits him — erasing the memories of his life with Paula, but restoring those of his life before the war. While he returns to his previous life, Paula tries to find a way to be reunited with her husband.

The film is available to rent on YouTube and Amazon Prime.
