Description
The Random Harvest DVD is the story of Paula Smith (Greer Garson, the secretary of industrialist Charles Rainier (Ronald Colman). She's also his wife, which Charles does not know. Shell-shocked during World War I, he doesn't recall his days as her husband, John Smith. Advised not to endanger Charles' fragile mental state, Paula cannot openly reveal her identity in this film. She must find other ways to help him remember their life together.

From the novel by James Hilton (Goodbye, Mr. Chips, Lost Horizon) comes one of the great sentimental romance movies. Garson's Paula, alongside her same-year triumph as Mrs. Miniver, established her persona as the strong, self-sacrificing wife. Random Harvest gathered seven Academy Award nominations (including Best Picture and Colman as Best Actor) and also reaped a box-office harvest as the year's #4 hit.

                I love to share this romantic tear jerker with my friends and family all of whom have not seen this wonderful story. Everyone falls in love with Greer Garson (especially her smiling eyes) and Ronald Colman (what a voice!). My mom leaned into the whole movie tissue in hand. She couldn't tear herself away, enjoying every minute of it. It's a jewel of a romantic tale. :)

                I purchased this product for personal use and did not expect to have been produced in Mexico. I am disappointed in that fact. I love the movie and the plot is very appropriate for all the veterans that have returned and not been recognized or gotten sufficient treatment for PTSD. Wonderful actors and truly gifted performances.

                        While Greer made some movies that are considered better, there's some really delightful parts of this movie where Greer showed just how magnificent of an actress she really was. The movie has a warmth and melancholy feeling that's rarely achieved with our newer movies. While there's of course a certain degree of everything works out type ending, I do find many aspects of the script and over the top dance routine Greer gave us as making this a must own.

                            This is a movie about the greatest challenge of life: how to love and be loved. It demonstrates that two people can live together in peace and harmony , with or without the emotional attachments associated with the usual loving marriage. When Greer Garson and Ronald Coleman talk to each other, it is as if the heavens open up and angels rule the earth.

                              I ordered Random Harvest because I wanted to see a good Ronald Coleman film, and it didn't disappoint. Though Ronald Coleman is much older than the original character from the book on which this classic film is based, he brings depth and sympathy to the role. He and Garson are very well-matched, and the story is absorbing and touching while standing up well to repeated viewings.

Greer Garson and Ronald Coleman are perfect in it and the story itself is an encouragement to anyone to never give up when you love someone.

                                    Will watch again and again. Had seen it on TCM several times before purchasing the movie. These two actors have the most beautiful speaking voices in the world !! I remember Ronald Colman's voice from the radio days when I was not more then a toddler. Greer had such beautiful red hair. Wish it could have been in color. The scene by the cottage would have been even more beautiful. If you like movies the way they used to make them, this is the one for you. No bad language, violence, or car chases. You have to actually listen to the dialogue and watch a beautiful love story unfolding :-)

                                        I loved this movie and will watch it over and over again. Greer Garson is stunning, and I love the interaction with "Smithy"...endearing and romantic.

                                          Greer Garson and Ronald Colman are the perfect pair. This movie runs the gambit for emotion.
