Except for Jimmy McHugh an enjoyable half hour
21 January 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Pleasant entry in the Screen Director's Playhouse series with Fred MacMurray and Marilyn Erskine most compatible as a long married couple taking a walk down memory lane via musical interludes.

The songs, all Jimmy McHugh compositions, are lovely and nicely performed to set the proper mood for each little vignette. If only they hadn't decided that they needed the composer to provide commentary for several of them. He has the personality of a lemming. A bonus to these little interludes is that one of the singers is Darla Hood from the Our Gang comedies all grown up.

But it's MacMurray and Erskine who make this worth watching, they have a nice natural somewhat spiky flow to their interactions making it seem as if they have been together for many years.

Best bit when Erskine walks in on a compromising but innocent situation where Fred is lighting two cigarettes for himself and a future female client and they are arguing about it later, Erskine says "You never lit a cigarette like that for ME!" and MacMurray comes back with "But you don't even SMOKE!" It's the little things.
