Based on the film "They Knew What They Wanted" by Sidney Howard.

Frank Loesser, composer/lyricist of ?Guys and Dolls,? scored his greatest artistic triumph with this touching, dramatic and intensely personal love story about a middle-aged vintner, Tony, whose mail-order marriage proposal is accepted under the girl?s mistaken assumption a photo of his young, handsome foreman is her intended husband.BRBRHer hurt and humiliation when she learns the truth, as well as a terrible accident which nearly kills Tony as he hurries to meet her, almost ends the relationship before it begins, but a loving understanding blossoms between them during Tony?s long convalescence.
