A Random Harvest was created by Fantines
I have this favourite film called A Random Harvest it's a black and white starring Ronald Colman and Greer Garson.

The plot is this:


As the First World War ends a soldier wanders out of a Midlands asylum. Smithy was found in the trenches having lost his memory and all contact with the past. Amidst the noise of the armistice celebrations he meets a music hall actress. They fall in love, marry, move to a country cottage, and have a son. On a trip alone to Liverpool Smithy is involved in an accident. His original memory returns, but he now remembers nothing at all about his new life.

I don't know if anyone has ever seen this film but I think Nat would be brilliant playing Colman's character Charles Rainer. As far as I'm aware this film as never been remade and I don't know why.

Hi Fantines:

"Random Harvest" also is a favorite of mine - such a sweet love story. Turner Classic Movies (a USA cable station) just aired it recently - it was said that Ronald Colman had the "perfect British voice" - your idea for a remake with Nat as Rainer is great! Along with his acting talent, his "perfect British voice" would certainly lend quality to a remake!

Thanks Helen

Yeah it is a wonderful film but who could play his wife Greer Garson's part.

Take care

Hi Tigger:)

Where do I sign :laugh: :laugh: :laugh: :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

Do think Nat reads these posts and if so does he contribute under a false name?

Hi again Fantines!

Geez, good question! Who would be as good as Greer Garson? Kristin Scott-Thomas? Kate Winslet? Emily Watson? Anyway, hope the powers that be will consider this for a future project.
Cheers to all!
