This romantic fantasy was based on a popular play by Arthur Pinero. Oliver Bradford is a young man who returned from World War II with severe facial scars, while he was engaged to be married before he left, he believes that no one could love him now, and he lives on the brink of suicide. Oliver meets Laura Pennington, a plain young woman who is convinced that her looks will never win her a man. These two lonely people marry, more out of desperation than love, and move into a small cottage which is all that remains of the large estate of Abigail Minnett, who lost the rest of her property in a fire. The cottage has been the site of many happy honeymooners over the years, and inside its walls, Oliver and Laura discover that a magical transformation takes place, he regains the handsome features he once possessed, and she becomes beautiful. The couple find love and happiness with each other, but find that the cottage’s magical spell only works as long as they remain at home with each other, the outside world does not recognize the beauty that they have found with each other. The Enchanted Cottage was previously adapted for the silent screen in 1924, with Richard Barthelmess and May McAvoy as the newlyweds.
