Movie Description Based upon a true story, JOURNEY FOR MARGARET is a sentimental look at the ravages of war and the heart required to recover from deep wounds. Robert Young plays John Davis, an American journalist covering World War II from London, whose pregnant wife, Nora (Laraine Davis), refuses to leave his side for the safety of New England. When she is injured during an air raid, their unborn child is lost, as is her ability to ever give birth again. Unhinged by her deprivation, Nora returns to the United States while her now sullen husband accepts an assignment to write a story about a home for war orphans. When an emotionally disturbed orphan shows a clear affection for John, his humor begins to alter, and hope returns. Margaret O'Brien and William Severn are both adorable as the orphans. Director W.S. Van Dyke's last film is a quiet, romantic, syrupy examination of hope for the future.
