Quotes

Cornelia Wheelwright aka Miss White: You know something, Mr Amory? I just discovered America. Imagine that, at my age.
James 'Jim': You discovered what?
Cornelia Wheelwright aka Miss White: America! What it's all about. Where else could it happen that a couple of youngsters like that would refuse to take money simply because they hadn't earned it? Where they don't want to live on Easy Street unless they build their own home? Ah, there they go, bless their hearts. You know, it's youngsters like that that make you have faith in the future.

Amusing but forgettable period comedy
8 January 2001 | by (New York, NY) – See all my reviews

Ronald Reagan is actually marvelous as ne'er-do-well boyfriend. Jeffrey Lynn is quite handsome as his rival for Priscilla Lane's attentions. Priscilla, an underrated actress in serious dramas and light comedies alike, does a very professional turn on an airy, yet pleasing, script. Worth a watch. 6/10
