Description
The year was 1944. Overseas, the war raged. Back home, a war-torn population suffered the loss of loved ones. Along came A Guy Named Joe – a fanciful, heart-warming tale based on the legend that pilots never die but return to guide fledgling airmen – and the public welcomed it with open arms. Charming, daredevil hero Spencer Tracy, lauded by Daily Variety as “magnificent in every phase of his performance,” stars with Irene Dunne, Van Johnson, Ward Bond and Esther Williams. Director Victor Fleming (Gone With the Wind) previously teamed with Tracy in 1937’s Captains Courageous – for which Tracy received a Best Actor Oscar®. Dalton Trumbo, another Academy Award®-winner* wrote the fine script. With its masterful mix of fantasy and reality, it comes as no surprise that A Guy Named Joe is an all-time film favorite. See for yourself. *1956: Best Motion Picturre Story – The Brave One.

      Comments about this product:

      " A Guy Named Joe " is the movie Spielberg used as a basis for his remake that we know as " Always ". I love Always, but this film is better in every way. All aspects of this movie establishes why it became Spielberg's favorite. The premise, the story, the acting, and the production are all superb. In this DVD format, the movie is at least as good as it must have looked in the theaters in the '40s. An excellent transfer with top notch resolution and contrast. This is the way all old films should be done, and for a 70-year old B & W film, it is highly recommended for a fun time.

            This has been one of my favorite movies for many years. I have even written in to this website to find out why it hasn't been available before now.
            My father was a bomber pilot during WWII so I have a soft spot in my heart for any movie involving flying because I love those fly boys. On top of that how can you go wrong with Spencer Tracy and Irene Dunne??

                Van Johnson is my idol. I am collecting some of his movies. The movie is romantic, sentimental - love it.

                Have been waiting quite a while for this movie to come out on DVD as I am a Spencer Tracy fan. Have enjoyed this movie for a long time. There is a copycat movie with Mr. Dreyfuss, which is good also. Enjoy this classic movie for the avid collector.
