Claire Andrews; Frank Vickers; Mary; Dan Matthews
Synopsis
During World War II, Claire becomes engaged to pilot Frank. When he’s reported missing in action, she is “not interested in men anymore!” Assigned as Dan’s secretary, they are in the Empire State Building in 1945 when it’s struck by an airplane. Dan rescues Claire and they fall in love. However, visiting a veteran’s hospital, Claire discovers an amnesiac Frank. He recovers his memory and Dan withdraws, because Claire feels she must honour her previous engagement. However, Frank confesses he married someone else during the war, so Claire is free to wed her true love Dan.

Indexer Notes

A military bomber did crash into the Empire State Building in New York on Saturday, 28 July 1945 (the story erroneously says "one foggy Saturday morning in August"). 14 people were killed.
