While Frank Sinatra is sitting on a bench in the school yard talking, his hands are in his lap. A moment later, his arms are folded. See more »
I found this to be a sweet movie with likable characters and good music. It was a delight to watch. Really enjoyed Jimmy Durante! Kathryn Grayson had such a lovely voice. Frank Sinatra's voice still had some maturing to do but still was a joy to listen to. Peter Lawford looked so young. Did not realize that it was Andre Previn playing the piano but should have known it was an expert on the keys. Black and white movies still have the ability to make a statement. And to see a movie with a happy ending is a real treat. I will be looking for additional movies of this caliber to enjoy that do not expose me to bloodshed or graphic sex. I highly recommend this film and would enjoy watching it again.
