Random Harvest (1942)

Beginning at the end of WWI, this film tells the story of an amnesia afflicted soldier (Ronald Coleman) and the woman (Greer Garson) whom he befriends and then marries.  Their happiness is cut short when, one day he slips on the rain soaked streets and suddenly regains his memories, but remembers nothing of the last three years of his life.  He returns back to his old life, but still feels the loss he can not remember, his only clue is an unnumbered key in his pocket.

The moving ending to this film is (I feel) on the same level of Charlie Chaplins’ classic City Lights.
