Just a Clarification
18 April 2007 | by mountainfamilySee all my reviews

I love this movie....it is very sweet and endearing. Doris Day was just lovely. She was the quintessential girl-next-door, an all American girl of the 1950's.

In regard to the question about her son in the film, in case no on responded to the latest posting....It was Jack Carson's character I believe who made reference to the boy's dad being killed in the war.

There was no other mention of it...and strange that the boy would ask Jack Carson if HE was his father. But the boy was only about 4 years old and could have meant, "are you going to be my father?"

The cartoon segment was a lot of fun, and the happy ending was rewarding.

They certainly don't make sweet films like this anymore.
