Charles Coburn stars in this installment of "The Star and the Story". He plays Tom Carey, an older worker at a company who does NOT want to retire...even though an up and coming executive at the firm has pushed through a new directive that folks over 65 MUST retire. Because Tom is not ready, he hatches a plan to pretend that he's 62...while his actual age is 68. Incidentally, in real life, Coburn was nearly 80 when he played this role!!
This is a cute little story...mostly because I love seeing Charles Coburn in just about anything! He was a marvelous old actor who never seemed young...and played old men exceptionally well. I am not scoring this higher, however, as a similar and much better story was made a few years earlier in "As Young as You Feel"...and Monty Woolley's performance and the writing were just perfect. See them both...they're both well worth your time.
