When Alex enters the lives of the musical Tuttle family, each of the three daughters falls for him. He is charming, good looking and personable. Laurie and Alex seem made for each other and become engaged. When Barney comes into the picture to help Alex with some musical arrangements matters become complicated. He is seen as a challenge by Laurie, who can't believe anyone could be as cynical, and she is more than a match for his gloomy outlook on life.Written by

Ironically, despite their considerable on-screen chemistry in their acting scenes, Doris Day and Frank Sinatra do not share any vocal duets until the final sixteen bars of "You, My Love" at the end of the film. See more »
When Laurie asks Barney why he doesn't have any plants in his window box, he says because they use up all the oxygen. People commonly conceive that plants actually use carbon dioxide and produce oxygen, and this has therefore commonly been regarded as a goof. However whilst a plant is a net producer of oxygen, it does this mostly during the day, whilst it is photosynthesizing, at night time plants do indeed use more oxygen than they produce and this can affect sleep. Barney's explanation is therefore quite sophisticated and indicates a focus on the night time. See more »
How about the big build up you were gonna give me?
I changed my mind.
Oh, aren't you gonna mention my talent? We talked about it all the way home, remember?
All they have to do is look at you to know you have no talent.

Young at Heart is an excellent film. Frank Sinatra is a wonderful talent. Such a loss to lose such a great actor. I ordered the video. One of the best scenes is the kiss in the kitchen. His character is a wonderful one that makes one want to take care of him. I think he deserved an Oscar.
