Fly Away with Karen Valentine!, 15 February 2016
Author: JLRMovieReviews from United States

Karen Valentine is married to John Davidson in California and struggling artist Michael Anderson, Jr in Paris. (He was in "Dear Heart" with Glenn Ford as Angela Lansbury's son.) The story goes that he was going to jump and end it all, so she tries to help him, which in effect prompts them marrying, of course, despite the fact she's already married to John. This is a very flighty film, ironically described, didn't mean the pun, but by the way, Karen is a flight attendant and that's how she met Michael. Even when a friend tries to talk some sense into her, she admits she doesn't want to hurt either of them and why can't she keep both of them? "Just a little thing like there's a law against that," says her friend. "Besides they're never going to meet." Karen says. "No one will ever know." But then suddenly the artist has a sponsor putting on a show in San Francisco. What!! And, of course, despite the fact she tries to John out of going with her to "her Aunt's funeral," he shows up at the same hotel. Pandemonium ensues with Lou Jacobi as a waiter serving dinner in two rooms across from each other, and the lady in both looks very much alike! What a crazy film this was! Pretty enjoyable, though. Far-fetched, yes. But the actors involved make this a nice time. Coffee, tea and a wacky time with Karen Valentine is in store for you here, so get ready for anything!
