About this movie

It's wartime, and young people are rushing into hasty --sometimes unwise -- marriages. But not pretty, level-headed Alice. Then she meets Joe, a G.I. on a two-day pass, and falls heart-over-level-head in love.

Judy Garland and Robert Walker are sweethearts for the ages in this glowing valentine of a movie directed by Vincente Minnelli (who, to add another layer of radiant romance, was about to marry his leading lady). And New York itself plays a role, transforming the whirlwind courtship into a love triangle. The city helps and hinders, holding the young lovers in a warm embrace one moment, then tossing up funny, frustrating roadblocks the next. The National Board of Review named The Clock one of the Top 10 movies of 1945. Film fans rate it even higher. They know The Clock is timeless, one of the great cinema loves of a lifetime.

Kind of a peculiar and off beat little romance movie. Not really much chemistry between the two leading players. Judy Garland was only five years or so out of OZ and she was already handling her acting duties like an old pro. This movie does NOT do Robert Walker justice. Hitchcock used him later on, against type, in ' Strangers On A Train'. A stroke of genius. Walker was superb in that.

This is a wonderful movie. Love is meant to be... God is love. These two individuals played the characters very well. If you do not love God, then this movie won't make sense to you. Thank for this lovely movie.
