Storyline

Carl Brown and Annie McGairy are in love. Their Irish immigrant parents knew each other in the old country - and Carl's parents want better for their son than Annie, who was raised in the slums. When Annie runs away to marry Carl while he's at college, they have many difficulties, including a college Dean that frowns upon married couples, Carl's angry parents, Carl's jealousy, and Annie's own problems with her sexuality.

Got My Wish!
6 October 1999 | by niki87See all my reviews

I tried to write a review from a long ago memory & a few hours later found that Joy in the Morning would be on TCM at 4:00 am Wed morning. Not only did I record the movie but I was too excited to sleep after waiting so many years to see it again. I watched it at 4:00 am & have already watched it again this morning. If you want to see Richard Chamberlain & Yvette Mimieux at their best, this is the movie to see. The bitter-sweet love story & struggle of two young people starting their life together is beautifully written and if this isn't enough, just hearing Richard sing the title song is enough to make you want to watch it over & over.
