Diluted sequel/remake to Strawberry Blonde (1941)
10 April 2007 | by (South Florida) – See all my reviews

How can you outsing, outact and outdance Jimmy Cagney? Maybe you can't. At least Dennis Morgan didn't here in this film with the same characters and basic plot as 1941's Strawberry Blonde. Both films are colorful and feature a lighthearted glimpse at a turn-of-the-century romance, but 'Blonde' trumps 'Sunday' in almost every regard. Can anyone portray a brawling, impish, but lovable Irishman better than Cagney? No, and I am surprised that Director Raoul Walsh and Sunday's producers thought that a mere seven years after the release of Strawberry Blonde, people would forget how great Jimmy really was. There's another problem with this film, too. In both romances, Virginia is the femme-fatale that all men crave, while Amy is a mousy suffragette type that even Biff sees as second-best. In the first film, Virginia is Rita Hayworth and Amy is Olivia DeHavilland, while in the re-make, Virginia is Janis Page and Amy is Dorothy Malone. One can see the wise casting in the original, while in the remake, the ladies are of equal charm and beauty (but neither approaching even DeHavilland's Amy). A bright spot is Don Defore,(later 'Mr. B' of TV's Hazel) who makes the Barnstead role more likable. On its own, One Sunday Afternoon might have seemed an enjoyable B-grade musical, but by comparison, it is severely paled. I wonder why Walsh directed both only seven years apart??
