Product Description:

In their seventh and final collaboration, master impresario David O. Selznick (GONE WITH THE WIND, THE WIZARD OF OZ) wrote and produced while John Cromwell (THE PRISONER OF ZENDA, ABE LINCOLN IN ILLINOIS) directed this beloved World War II blockbuster about life on the home front. Claudette Colbert stars as Anne Hilton, an attractive housewife whose husband is fighting in Europe. SINCE YOU WENT AWAY examines the day-to-day lives of Anne and her fellow war brides as they find employment in ammunition factories, take in boarders to make ends meet, and try not to think about what might be happening to their husbands in combat. Hattie McDaniel contributes a strong performance as the family maid, Agnes Moorehead provides a stinging edge with her turn as a woman twisted by the privations of war, and Shirley Temple and Jennifer Jones shine as Anne's two daughters, Bridget and Jane, maturing and embarking on their first romantic escapades. Brilliantly scored, SINCE YOU WENT AWAY is a touching, sentimental, realistic portrait of American family life during World War II.

Plot Synopsis:

Emotional study of the daily life of an idealized American family struggling with the practical inconveniences of wartime.
