Olivia de Havilland,

Debbie Reynolds' single "Tammy" spent 23 weeks on the "Top 40" charts, starting 07/22/57. It was #1 for five weeks. It was also nominated for a "Best Song" Academy Award for 1957 (but lost to 'All the Way' from the film The Joker Is Wild (1957).) See more »
"Cute" movie for the time it was released. Has special meaning for me.
Being in my early 60's, I saw 'Tammy and the Bachelor' when I was a teenager. It was a wonderful movie to me then: the poor girl who gets the handsome, affluent beau. I still like the movie for its simple message: one should be judged by his/her character, not by social status. "Tammy" was the first song that I ever sang in a talent contest (and I won first place), so I have a reason to remember the title song with much interest. A friend of my older brother came from New York to North Carolina for a visit back then and had me to sing "Tammy" over and over. Back then, I felt as if I WERE Tammy. Such movies don't wear as well with time as the classics, but they're nice to remember and to watch again.
