Myra and Roy meet and fall in love on Waterloo Bridge during an air raid. Their love will be one of the war's unspoken casualities. Heartbroken after Roy is reportedly killed in action, Myra turns to prostitution to make her way. The report, however, is false. Roy later returns from a POW camp, eager to begin life anew with his beloved. But Myra's shattered spirit may no longer hold any room for happiness.
Vivien Leigh plays Myra, at once winning and breaking viewers' hearts in this exquisite melodrama. In a compassionate performance that was his all-time favorite, Robert Taylor is gallant Roy. Under Mervyn Le Roy's astute direction, they make Waterloo Bridge a meeting place for lovers.
