[Trying to convince Gallagher that their visitor was a fake]

Like "Let's Make It Legal," this is another example of a stepping stone in the career of Marilyn Monroe. But, this succeeds where "Legal" doesn't. It focuses on a 65-year-old man who's been laid off due to company policy (in a bookbinding company) that prevents employees from working once they turn 65. Naturally, Monty Woolley doesn't take kindly to being put out to pasture. He's still young and fit as a fiddle. He promptly comes up with an idea to change company policy (just how I'm not telling) and in so doing, shaking things up. "As Young As You Feel" boasts a great cast with David Wayne, Jean Peters, Thelma Ritter, Allyn Joslyn, Albert Dekker, Russ Tamblyn, and Constance Bennett, who exceptionally plays Dekker's wife, who needs to feel loved and appreciated. A great movie vehicle for Monty Woolley, this film is fun, innovative, charming and leaves you feeling younger than when you started it.
