Dashing reporter Vincent Bullit has just returned from covering the Spanish Civil War. His boss, newspaper magnate Fullerton, has more plans to send him off to China. However, first Fullerton invites Bullit to the peace and quiet of his own home to write a series of European affair articles. When Fullerton's adolescent daughter Alice develops a crush on Bullit, her suitor, boyscout Ken Warren, doesn't seem to stand a chance. Mr. and Mrs. Fullerton, Ken Warren, and even Vincent Bullit himself do their best to sway young Alice's feelings away from the older man. It's a difficult task though, as she is at 'that certain age.' Written by

This is a heartwarming and feel good film! Deanna Durbin is really great with her singing of the title number as well as other good songs! "That Certain Age" received two Oscar nominations in the musical category. The story is about a well to do family headed by a newspaper magnate who invites one of his reporters to his expansive estate to stay in the guest house behind their mansion. Durbin and her friends are rehearsing for a show that they are going to put on at the theatre in town and of course, they are using the guest house for their rehearsals. When they get word that this distinguished reporter is coming to visit to work on some articles, they don't like it and Durbin decides they will all pull some shenanigans to make him want to leave. Only one problem, the love bug bites Durbin and she is smitten by the older man. She becomes so enamored that she ignores the show and her friends and even her boyfriend. The reporter now has the task of setting her straight but that isn't going to be that easy to do! If you are a Deanna Durbin fan or a Melvyn Douglas fan, this film is one you won't want to miss! The rest of the cast is great too! Some really good laughs!
