About I Want You: In 1950, it’s life as usual in a middle-American town. Cold War paranoia is beginning and the young men’s biggest concern is the draft board and deferments from the peacetime army. Then the Korean War begins, and the Greer family starts to worry: Kid brother Jack, courting the lovely daughter of the draft board chairman, is next on the list. The film is a character study examining American attitudes of that era. Starring Dana Andrews, Dorothy McGuire, Farley Granger, and Peggy Dow.
