I wish I could see it again right now
26 January 2004 | by (Circleville, Ohio) – See all my reviews

This is a great piece of 60's escapism. I'm surprised they didn't have Maurice Chavalier sing the title song instead of Andy Williams and Robert Goulet. Sandra Dee is a rich young woman in America engaged to a night club singer{or owner- I can't remember). She is called to her French grandfather's{ Maurice Chavalier} presumed deathbed. He wants to make sure she is happy. He's convinced that her fiance isn't the right one because he doesn't knock her shoes off when he kisses her. Apparently Sandra's grandma always got her shoes knocked off when her husband {Chavalier} kissed her. Enters Robert Goulet who is a neighbor and sparks fly, helped by her grandfather's sly maneuvering. It was alot of fun and I really enjoyed seeing Andy Williams do a straight acting role. I know I am prejudiced because I adore Andy Williams {I grew up watching his show every week and listening to my Mom playing his records} but I really feel he did a great job. I wish I could see it again, over and over!
