He does not love Susan, but she will make something of him the family expects. Arthur proposes but then meets a girl with no money who he could easily fall in love with. Written by

[pointing at a mounted moose on the wall]
Where's the rest of this moose?
Arthur, I think it's time we got to know one another.
I do too. That's why I had to come over today. Hmhmhmhm. This is a tough room.
[patting the moose]
I don't have to tell you that.
You must've hated this moose.
Why don't you forget the moose for a moment!

Delightful movie. Side splitting laughs at times, heart warming at others. Sir John Gielgud is wonderfully funny and poignant as Hobson, Arthur's butler. My favorite scene is where he goes to Liza Minnelli's house to talk to her, you really sympathize for him and her. Memorable song "The best that you can do", and unforgettable characters make this a feel-good memorable movie. Definitely on my Top 30 of all time. 10/10
