In short, I‘ll Be Seeing You is a wonderful film.  It’s set towards the end of World War II, where a veteran (played very well by Joseph Cotten) is suffering from what we would now call PTSD.  He’s jumping at any sound, and thinks that he’s likely to be attacked at any moment. His doctors at the VA are letting him out from the psych ward, to see how well he’s able to function in normal society. On his train ride, he meets a beautiful young lady (played very well by Ginger Rogers), a lady who’s also out on furlough — from prison.

The Abominable Dr. Phibes is one of the great horror movies, with a great cast, beautiful music, wonderful sets putting the Art Deco style to excellent use and some great acting, where the audience even feels some sympathy for the murderous Dr. Phibes, played incredibly well by the talented Vincent Price.
