Wonderfully rare classic deserving more exposure
24 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

After arduously searching for a copy for years, I'd finally found a copy of this terrific film classic on Ebay, recently. I wasn't disappointed! This is a great movie about a newlywed couple who procrastinate telling their folks that they'd eloped! Julie's father thinks Calvin is a scatterbrain & not mature enough to be a husband to his daughter, so there are a comedy of errors & miscommunication. The Turners consequently learn Julie is preggers & so they decide to try & make the best of things.

Julie's mom is more accepting & eventually Mr. Turner warms to the idea of having Calvin for a son-in-law. The set looks as if it had been shot on the same set as Father Knows Best. The house looks identical to the Andersons! Very homey & warm, which adds to the film's charm.

This film boasts a fine cast who portray their parts well.

Bill Goodwin was one of the most attractive supporting actors of his time, & left us way too early, alas. He stole the show in Going Steady, as the curmudgeonly Dad who endeared himself to us. He was undoubtedly a first-rate talent whose legacy of films will be around for a long time to come to continue to delight his fans.

Molly Bee & Alan Reed Jr. were cast well, too! As were Irene Hervey & Ken Miller.

The videobeat has made the film available finally, in both VHS & DVD formats, so if you like wholesome, 1950's comedy-romance films, get yourself a copy, as I said, it took me ages to finally locate a copy on Ebay. All I could find was a copy in VHS, so I'll also be getting a copy on DVD through the VideoBeat. Too bad the values & clean entertainment portrayed in these films are so rare. Makes us appreciate films like this more. I will treasure my copy of Going Steady & am over the moon to have it among my collection.
