Peter Graves (not the Mission: Impossible star, but a same-named British actor) heads the cast of the nostalgic Spring Song. Covering the years 1911 to 1946, the story chronicles two different love stories, with the same actors playing both couples. Graves portrays Tony Winster and his own nephew, also named Tony, while Carol Raye plays Janet Hill and her daughter Janet Ware. The 1911 romance ends unhappily due to parental interference; the lovers in 1946 vow not to repeat the mistakes of their forebears. Figuring prominently in the closing scenes is an experimental jet flight piloted by Geoffrey de Havilland (a relative of actresses Olivia de Havilland and Joan Fontaine), who was killed in a crash shortly before the release of Spring Song.
