It is so unlike the typical Jim Carrey movie; he's not clowning but it is a beautiful story that had a lot of basis in fact in the McCarthy era and very patriotic, which I am also. I keep meaning to look for the name of the young lady who played his supposed girlfriend/fiancee. Martin Landau was also very good in this movie.

I love the fact that Alibris gives me great choices, from new in box to gently used. I purchase their books frequently also, and have found some that I have loved since childhood.
