Storyline

When Alex enters the lives of the musical Tuttle family, each of the three daughters falls for him. He is charming, good looking and personable. Laurie and Alex seem made for each other and become engaged. When Barney comes into the picture to help Alex with some musical arrangements matters become complicated. He is seen as a challenge by Laurie, who can't believe anyone could be as cynical, and she is more than a match for his gloomy outlook on life. Written by Ron Kerrigan <mvg@whidbey.com>

Trivia

There was no soundtrack album because Doris Day and Frank Sinatra were under contract to different record labels in 1954. Columbia issued a 10-inch LP featuring six new recordings by Miss Day and reissues of two Sinatra cuts from the previous decade: "Someone to Watch Over Me" (music by George Gershwin, lyrics by Ira Gershwin), recorded in 1945, and "One for My Baby (And One More for the Road)" (music by Harold Arlen, lyrics by Johnny Mercer), recorded in 1947. The Columbia compilation found its way to number 15 on the "Billboard" pop albums chart. On a Capitol 45 extended-play release, Mr. Sinatra sang renditions of four songs from this movie. Mr. Sinatra's single of the title tune (music by Johnny Richards, lyrics by Carolyn Leigh) already had been a second-place finisher in "Billboard" by the time of the picture's opening, and this Sinatra trademark song became a million seller.

Quotes

Barney Sloan: You know what a glove man is? I'm a glove man. You shag flies in the hot sun all your life, but you never go to bat. Like right off, they said - no parents, make him an orphan - he'll be alright. Education? Grammer school's enough; send him off to work. So I cooperate, & then they come up with a nice big Depression.

Very sweet
14 March 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I'd forgotten how much i loved this film until i watched it yesterday. I remember watching it a lot years ago but it isn't the sort of film that sticks out as being mind-blowing. Nevertheless it's still a really good one to watch when you don't want anything too heavy. There are some nice floaty songs, a few teary scenes and overall a nice mix of everything a good film needs, without anything harsh thrown in.

Frank Sinatra and Doris Day are totally believable throughout and compliment each other perfectly. The cast as a whole works very well, the characters are all complex and not over-the-top or dull. In short, it is a perfectly likable film.
