Trivia

Shirley MacLaine was originally cast in the grandmother role, however scheduling conflicts with the fourth season of Downton Abbey (2010) required her to be replaced with Susan Sarandon. Before Sarandon was ultimately cast, Debbie Reynolds, who famously starred in Tammy and the Bachelor (1957), in the role of Tammy, was also considered. Reynolds' rendition of the title song, "Tammy," spent 23 weeks on the Billboard Top 40 chart, beginning July 27, 1957, including five weeks at number-one, and was nominated for a Best Song Academy Award for 1957.

Tammy.. hot humid 35 degrees Celsius Dutch summer
20 July 2014 | by (Heerlen Holland) – See all my reviews

Predictable, well edited, simple, straight forward summer comedy. Pleiades of long gone and appreciated stars entering the scene at exactly right time and the right place. Pure, not surprising pleasure. Impression of having fun, well packed and served. Turn out your self awareness and you will be fine. It's not a film about keeping up appearances.

Do not make 9th Symphony out of the Greensleeves.

At 35 degrees Celcius on a hot day of the Dutch summer when all I can think is a pint of a cold La Chouffe.

Lekker!!!
