"No triumph of either my stage or screen career has ever rivalled the excitement of trips down the Mississippi on the river boats with my father."

Irene Marie Dunn was born in Louisville, Kentucky on December 20, 1898 before there was a device called a radio, before the first motion picture theater was conceived, before the Wright brothers left the earth in a funny looking thing called an airplane. But when her steamboat inspector father took her along on a trip down the mighty Mississippi River, she thought she was in heaven. When she made this remark she had already been nominated for five Academy Awards for Best Actress. One of her great joys was to christen the Mark Twain River Boat on the opening day of Disneyland in 1955, and she always maintained that acting was just a casual part of life. She felt that life is much more than fame and fortune. That, coming from an actress whose name was on the tips of movie fans lips for several decades.

In this saga about two people in love who will face crises that threaten to tear them apart, Irene Dunne is the love interest of Cary Grant, another legendary actor from the first years of motion pictures. As our drama opens Edgar Buchanan, as longtime friend-of-the-family Applejack Carney, is putting a phonograph record on the Victrola and a singer begins singing, “You were meant for Me” . . . . Julie is coming up the stairs into the room and she hears the first words of Their song . . . . The song that was playing when she met the man of her dreams. Julie demands that Applejack stop playing that song, and Applejack quickly lifts the phonograph needle from the record. Julie and Roger have been married many years, and Julie is packing to leave her home and her husband . . . . Because of the troubles between Julie and Roger her dream marriage has turned into a nightmare. As she remembers the first time she heard that song, and the first time she set eyes on Roger, we travel back to the first day that Roger and Julie met, and watch the whirlwind courtship and the wild events that led to marriage and the challenges of love and life for a young couple in love in a stormy, stormy world. After watching their amazing journey through the adventures of marriage we wind up where we were when the story opened. Julie is packing to go away and end her marriage to Roger, and Roger is lamenting with Julie over the failure of their marriage, and we can see that they still love each other, but it is far too late to mend the bruises and forget the disagreements and the disastrous fateful events that they have endured. . . . The end of a great love is only minutes away . . . . And then the telephone rings. . . . Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
