On April 2, 1945 when this movie hit American theaters, American boys had been fighting and dying in World War II for several years. By the end of April that year Adolf Hitler would commit suicide, and in August we would drop two atomic bombs on Japanese cities, and by September the war would officially be finished. But in early April no one could see that far ahead, and there were many mothers and fathers, sisters and wives in America that were grieving for their boys that were far away from home. In this adventure we meet a soldier that was discovered alive in a small farm house in France. Four American soldiers were seeking shelter in the house when it was bombed by an enemy plane. Only one soldier was found alive, and he had total amnesia. Without the dog tag around his neck, he could not be identified by the Army, but they knew the names and addresses of the four boys that were in that farm house. Our soldier without a name or memory decided to call himself Johnny March, and he went on a search for his identity. There were four boys in that farmhouse in France, and he went to their homes one by one, encountering wives, children and mothers and fathers. After visiting three of the families and discovering that he was not known to any of them, he happily heads to the fourth home, a farm in Iowa, where his family must be, hoping that they will know him and help him to restore his memory. But what are the chances . . . he is not the son of the Iowa farmer and his wife either . . . he seems to be 'no one.' Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn and drizzle plenty of warm melted butter on it and enjoy a slice of America at war and experience not the battles of the warriors but rather the lives, feelings and emotions of the families at home as they waited for their boys at war.
