Edward Everett Horton,

The 1967 movie version of "Pauline" was originally developed to be released as a TV series and is in fact, the compilation of the pilot and subsequent 2nd and 3rd episodes. Unfortunately the first few episodes were considered a complete flop and were unable to garner any interest from any sponsor or network of the day. In order to salvage what they could, the first 3 episodes were combined by Universal Pictures into a theatrical film release. See more »
I've noticed how all the other reviews of this film mention how "wholesome" and "entertaining" it is. These people need to get out of the house more often. I don't know why they're shilling for this vapid, insipid, brainless piece of fluff. Pat Boone has absolutely no acting talent whatsoever, and his ineptness is exceeded only by that of his co-star Pamela Austin, a former model (yet one more reason to outlaw the insidious practice of inflicting talentless models on an unsuspecting moveiegoing public, a foul habit that unfortunately persists to this day). A good supporting cast (Terry-Thomas, Edward Everett Hortyon, among others) tries hard to make some sense out of this, but to no avail. I noticed that two directors shared credit, although "credit" isn't the word I would use (neither is "director"). As for "wholesome entertainment," there are plenty of those types of movies available without torturing your loved ones by forcing them to sit through this. Find one of those films, and skip this one.
