Very Sweet 70's TV Movie
8 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As a child growing up in the 1960's and 1970's I used to love to watch those wonderful ABC Movie of the Week made-for-TV movies. The theme would start with the gorgeous Burt Bacharach's "Nikki", an all time favorite song from one of my all time favorite composers. One of those most memorable movies was 1970's "But I Don't Want To Get Married!" a simple comedy about a widower, played by the late great Herschel Bernardi and his two sons who move to California to start a new life. Walter (Bernardi) discovers the single life and suddenly becomes the target of blind dates, set-ups and desire of several needy single women. Everyone wants what's good for Walter but he's still not over his loss nor is he ready to make a commitment and settle down, neither are his sons ready for a new mother.

This is a sweet, heart-warming movie with a very likable cast like the movie's director and co-producer Jerry Paris as Walter's playboy co-worker, Brandon Cruz as his youngest son best known for his role in "The Courtship of Eddie's Father" and of course the unforgettable women Shirley Jones, Tina Louise, Nanette Fabray, Sue Lyon, June Lockhart and more.

I love the time this movie was made; no big social issues weighed it down, no one slept around and while its topic has been done several times (before and after) still takes you back to a more innocent time not so long ago. A few years ago it played on a late-late night broadcast and luckily I managed to record it. I have never seen it since then or on video. It's too bad others can't share what makes this movie a somewhat forgotten gem especially being produced by another late great, Aaron Spelling.
