I'll Be Seeing You (1944)

I'll Be Seeing You (1944), directed by William Dieterle.

The soldier seems absent minded, dissociated and quietly upset. He is invisible to most of the crowd, but the woman in the train seat opposite spots him immediately. She has secrets of her own, on holiday furlough from prison for manslaughter.
