"Most Popular Girl" Maggie Brewster is a successful real estate agent, but her very close relationship with her father seems to make any other man fall short in her eyes. While Maggies best friend, "happily" married Barnie spends time with Jack who still lives on the high school football field Fred and Maggie renew their friendship and find the years haven't been as full as they should have been.

An Unfinished Romance
8 August 2007 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

The most interesting thing I found out about Spring Reunion is that Kirk Douglas produced it. He also had the good sense not to star in it. Not that it's a bad film, but Kirk's career was on the way up and the stars of Spring Reunion were on the way down.

Both Betty Hutton and Dana Andrews's careers crested during the Forties as leads in A films. In fact this would be Betty Hutton's last big screen film. Dana Andrews had slipped into the ranks of B films where he would be the rest of his career except for an occasional supporting part in a big budget film.

Betty and Dana are a pair of thirty somethings in their hometown of Carson for their Spring Reunion of the class of 1941. He was the hotshot All American voted the boy most likely to succeed and she was the most popular girl of course.

Life hasn't quite worked out as they thought it would, but as it is in these films they do find time to add to an unfinished romance. They also remember why things didn't end in marriage back in the day.

It was nice seeing a whole bunch of other talented players as various types at the reunion. People like Jean Hagen, Gordon Jones, Richard Deacon, and Herbert Anderson are always a treat.

Spring Reunion today would be a nice film for the Lifetime channel. Maybe someone there will do a remake of it sometime.
