31 March 2004 | by (Culpeper, VA) – See all my reviews

Frank Borzage directed and Francis Marion wrote the screenplay for this fine comedy-drama about the trials and tribulations of a young couple's first year of marriage. The film's highlight is a dinner party the wife (Grace Livingston) sets up to help her husband (Matt Moore) land a big business deal in which everything imaginable goes wrong. The newlyweds have plenty of trouble and laughs throughout this beautifully acted picture, but they finish their difficult first year with hubby making good and a baby on the way. Subtle and charming, this romantic comedy deserves a much bigger audience. One pleased observer called it The Crowd meets Skinner's Dress Suit! Phil Carli on piano. Thank god for film festivals like this one that make rare films like this available and the folks who provide comments to IMDB for others to share. Please support the IMDB and early film festivals!
