In her 2011 autobiography, Learning to Live Out Loud: A Memoir, Piper Laurie revealed that she lost her virginity to Ronald Reagan during the time they were filming this movie together. Reagan was in his 40s, while Laurie was still in her teens; in the movie, Reagan plays her father. See more »
Though future president Ronald Reagan is top billed in Louisa the accent is Hollywood's senior citizens as we are treated to golden age romantic triangle involving Edmund Gwenn, Charles Coburn, and Spring Byington. Love is lovelier the second time around as the song goes at least for two of them.
Reagan is a successful executive who has landed a big promotion from his boss Charles Coburn and he's married to Ruth Hussey with kids Piper Laurie and Jimmy Hunt. Spring is his mother and she lives with them. I know how that is because I had a paternal grandmother living with me and believe me she wasn't as nice as Spring Byington.
Still Spring is made to feel like a fifth wheel in the household and so she starts looking for some companionship and she finds it with Edmund Gwenn who owns a grocery store and has an interesting background. One night Coburn comes over in the middle of family dinner and he shows an interest in Spring.
That has to be exciting for one of Spring's age and now my age to be the love object in a romantic triangle. She's got a new lease on life and the girl just struts her stuff.
Louisa got some Oscar consideration when it received a nomination for Best Sound recording. It's a pleasant enough family comedy and it holds up well because it has some forever themes about it.
