Storyline

The Norton family is in a turmoil due to faultfinding grandma Louisa. Strongly urged to find outside interests, Louisa starts dating grocer Hammond; their necking among the teenagers shocks the latter (!), and Louisa's architect son Hal isn't too thrilled either. So what's to do when Hal's boss Mr. Burnside becomes a rival for Louisa's favors? Written by Rod Crawford <puffinus@u.washington.edu>

A love story with "mature" protagonists.
20 March 2000 | by See all my reviews

This film about falling in love after 60 could have easily descended into sentimental sappiness, but its intelligently funny script and fine comedic acting by its principals keeps it light and heartwarming. Spring Byington is charmingly vivacious without losing her dignity; Edmund Gwenn is cherubic and wise as the grocer suitor, and Charles Coburn as his tycoon rival reveals once again why he was one of the best character actors in the business. Stars Ronald Reagan and Ruth Hussey do well with what is essentially strong supporting roles as Byington's put-upon son and daughter-in-law. All in all, an entertaining hour and a half.
