Well, that leaves me the last of the bachelors.
Dr. Roy Drover:
You know, Roy, I ought to find a girl like that, and settle down.
Dr. Roy Drover:
Yes, I know. Marriage is always a picture like that. Other men's marriages.
No, I really mean it.

To enjoy this film, you really have to suspend disbelief. I can often times do this, but if you just can't believe in the possibility of pairing an ordinary-looking middle-aged guy (Tracy) with an extremely sexy young woman (Turner), then you should probably just skip the film. In fact, the people around this strange pairing also have trouble accepting this marriage. My problem wasn't just the age differences, but the personality differences--I just couldn't understand why she was attracted to him (I have my suspicions why HE would be interested). The story itself apart from that is good and I like that Zachary Scott is there for support--he is great in his caddish roles. Not a bad but not an exceptional film--but sure to please fans of Tracy.
