In The Enchanted Cottage, we see the story of two socially outcasted individuals, Oliver Bradford (Robert Young) and Laura Pennington (Dorothy McGuire), who discover love and happiness in the unlikeliest of places. The film takes place during World War II, and Oliver is a pilot who has been disfigured in combat. He is engaged to a beautiful socialite, but their wedding is postponed when Oliver becomes disfigured. To avoid social judgment, Oliver rents a secluded cottage on the coast of New England that is known to be enchanted.
Laura works as a maid at a hotel in the same area, and she has a slight limp that causes her to struggle socially. She is immediately drawn to Oliver's kindness and forces herself on him as his maid. The two become fast friends and slowly fall in love, despite the societal expectation for Oliver to marry his fiancÃ©.
The enchantment of the cottage begins to take hold of the couple, and soon they find themselves transformed physically and emotionally. Though their outward appearances remain the same, they begin to see each other and the world around them through rose-colored glasses.
Meanwhile, their friends and family begin to notice the change in the couple and start to wonder what is happening at the cottage. When the truth is revealed, there is a mix of emotions, but ultimately love prevails in the end.
The Enchanted Cottage is a charming and heartwarming love story that has stood the test of time. It features beautiful scenery and an excellent cast, including Herbert Marshall as a blind pianist who helps guide Oliver and Laura on their journey.
The movie is a testament to the idea that love transcends physical appearance and societal expectations. It is a reminder that beauty truly is in the eye of the beholder and that true love can be found in unexpected places.
Overall, The Enchanted Cottage is a beautiful and moving film that captures the essence of true love and the power of acceptance. It is a must-see for anyone who loves a good love story or is looking for a feel-good movie with a happy ending.
