Fun movie facts: When the movie Always (1989) came out we loved the movie and the song “Smoke gets in your eyes” by the Platters.  So the song became our song. The song was first used in the film Roberta (1935). Always was filmed in Montana the year we had a lot of fires. The movie is a remake of “ A Guy Named Joe” (1943).  The movie Always was also the last time we saw Audrey Hepburn. The movies are close to each other including some of the names. The story: “A Guy Named Joe” When adventurous World War II bomber pilot Pete Sandidge (Spencer Tracy) dies in an aerial attack after ordering the crew to safety, he meets "the General," a legendary dead pilot who assigns Pete to return to earth as a guardian angel for a new pilot named Ted Randall (Van Johnson). But when Pete learns that Ted is dating Pete's former girlfriend, Dorinda Durston (Irene Dunne), he must set aside his jealousy and prepare Ted for a dangerous bombing mission. “Always” Aerial firefighter Pete (Richard Dreyfuss) risks himself and his vintage World War II airplane in a constant and death-defying quest to fight forest wildfires, much to the dismay of his girlfriend, Dorinda (Holly Hunter). His love for Dorinda and the advice of fellow pilot Al (John Goodman) convince Pete to give up his perilous career, but he flies one last mission. Pete heroically saves Al's plane from certain destruction, but with supernatural consequences.
