Did you fall in love with love as a kid?

It's 1949, I'm 13 years old, and I had just walked out of the RKO Pelham movie theatre in the Bronx--the movie, (one of a double bill---wonder if you 'kids' remember when movies showed 2 pictures, a cartoon, a newsreel, coming attractions, etc?) and I was in love with love! It was a pretty 'racy' movie for its time--Susan Hayward has a child out of wedlock with Dana Andrews who is about to be shipped overseas--oh the melodrama, the romance and the music! I bought the sheet music and spent days learning the lyrics which to this day I remember and get transported back to that day whenever I think of them. Ah, youth--and then in today's paper I read "Nothing annoys a man as to hear a woman promising to love him 'forever' when he merely wanted her to love him for a few weeks." Helen Rowland And I am still a romantic 67 years later! The full movie is available on Youtube For just the song

Yes, this is a grand old movie. They don't make them like that anymore. Susan Hayward was a great actress. The song was by Victor Young who is movie music legend and lyrics by Ned Washington who also wrote When You Wish Upon a Star. First class all the way!!!

Under the studio systems stars didn't get paid millions of dollars so 'spectacular' movies didn't have to be made--small, intimate love stories and musicals were made for little and made big profits!! I remember so many good 'old' movies and stars!
