Vacation from Marriage
Robert and Cathy Wilson (Robert Donat and Deborah Kerr), possibly the dullest married couple in England, bid each other a tepid farewell when World War II separates them. Robert joins the Navy, gets in shipshape condition and becomes a war hero. Cathy joins the WRENS, tries lipstick and a new 'do, and becomes a woman of the world. And both experience a thrilling romantic fling. Three years pass before they get leave at the same time, bringing a reunion they dread. Can the new Robert and Cathy fall in love all over again? Do they even want to try? The supporting cast shines, too. Ann Todd plays the lovely war widow who wins Robert's heart. And Glynis Johns brings her husky voice and offbeat charm to the role of Cathy's pal in the WRENS, aptly named Dizzy.
