Quotes

Frank Erickson: [Trying to convince Gallagher that their visitor was a fake] All you have to do is to look at his picture in the file, sir.
Horace Gallagher: Never mind the file. Now let me get this straight. You say the whole world thinks that the man who inspected our plant yesterday was the president of the Consolidated Motors, is that it?
Frank Erickson: Yes, sir. Then he made a speech at the Chamber of Commerce.

Monty Meets Marilyn
3 June 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Like "Let's Make It Legal," this is another example of a stepping stone in the career of Marilyn Monroe. But, this succeeds where "Legal" doesn't. It focuses on a 65-year-old man who's been laid off due to company policy (in a bookbinding company) that prevents employees from working once they turn 65. Naturally, Monty Woolley doesn't take kindly to being put out to pasture. He's still young and fit as a fiddle. He promptly comes up with an idea to change company policy (just how I'm not telling) and in so doing, shaking things up. "As Young As You Feel" boasts a great cast with David Wayne, Jean Peters, Thelma Ritter, Allyn Joslyn, Albert Dekker, Russ Tamblyn, and Constance Bennett, who exceptionally plays Dekker's wife, who needs to feel loved and appreciated. A great movie vehicle for Monty Woolley, this film is fun, innovative, charming and leaves you feeling younger than when you started it.
