Storyline

Famous actress Helen Walbridge gives her lover, Stuart McAllister, the key to her apartment intending to meet him there after a party celebrating her latest success. Stuart finds Helen's daughter, Lois Johnson, when he gets there, waiting for her mother. Lois has been hidden in a school by Helen so it will not be known she has a 19-year-old daughter, which may interfere with her career. Stuart and Lois become great friends, causing Helen to become jealous enough to convince Lois she's in love with upper crust society bachelor Russell Gray when they meet at a party and he proposes. But when Lois meets Russell's family at their estate she feels totally out of place, and calls Stuart to come and take her home. The engagement is broken, but Helen resorts to other tactics to try to wrest Lois away from Stuart. Written by Arthur Hausner <genart@volcano.net>

What a Pleasant Movie
22 January 2002 | by (Orlando) – See all my reviews

What a pleasant little movie this is, and I mean that in the best possible way. This older man, younger woman romance moves swiftly, has gorgeous sets and attractive costumes. I now see why George Brent was one of the more popular stars of his day. He has the unusual ability to be stoic and sensitive at the same time. You can feel his uneasiness and his pain as he realizes he is falling in love a woman he should not be. Jean Muir, as the object of his affection, is cute, perky, and marvelous. Verree Teasdale is cast perfectly as the mother.
