  • Yes, A Gem

    Love finding these gems thanks to TCM. Glynis Johns is a joy in this film, just a much younger Mrs Banks. She helps a timid Deborah Kerr find her voice, her beauty and her path and it's fun to watch. They teamed up together again in The Sundowners with excellent results. Loved watching Robert Donat evolve into a more confident, attractive man. Another must see from me!

  • A Gem of a Movie

    What a gem. I only recently discovered Robert Donat thanks to TCM, and now I'm a great fan of his work. How a World War against fascism not change people for the better! And then of course I love love stories with happy endings.

  • Different kind of love story

    • J.D. Hines
    • 5/30/09

    This film allows a couple to fall in love with each other twice. But with the second falling they are vastly improved people. The good war ennobled them both through mutual military service, making them stronger, braver, sexier, simply more fully human. Donat especially seems to stand straighter with several more pounds of muscle and the benefit of Royal Navy tailoring.

    A sweet and wonderful film, very skillfully directed, superb screenplay. The performances are sublime. Intelligent, excellent character development. A gem of a film.

  • How an event can change someone

    I first saw this movie in 1963 just before I joined the military and at a time in my life when, like many other young persons, I asked, "what am I supposed to do with my life". I thought the story of this couple said what is most important about events and decisions that affects people. This couple lived in a world that was changing and although they did not overtly think about how their actions might affect them, in the end they came to realize that their three years apart provided each a wider view of the world that engendered a deeper understanding of who they were, the reasons they were together in the first place and that the change they underwent actually strengthened their relationship. "Vacation from Marriage" is not only a believable story about how an event can change someone but it is also a microcosmic view of how a major event, like a war, affects people. This movie is underrated and should be made more widely available.

  • A poignant memory

    • Joseph Russell
    • 5/3/06

    I saw this movie in late 1945 or early '46, while I was still in the US Navy, and felt that it captured with delicacy and tenderness the way in which active involvement in the war worked transforming changes in the participants, and how survival differed so from what one would otherwise have expected from previously humdrum lives. Ever since then I have been seeking an opportunity to see it again, and to show it to my wife, who has never seen it.
