Fresh: Producer-Director George Stevens has transferred the John van Druten play, via a free-wheeling script by DeWitt Bodeen, in all its genial personality to the screen.

don't really get why everyone loves this so much or else it's just far too sentimental for my tastes. the outlandish accents and gushing music put me off right away but i stuck it out for 2+ hours thinking there must be something...give me curtiz' 'life with father' any day

A beautiful film that I used to watch with my Grandmother. George Stevens?s timeless classic is cinema at its best, with a brilliant performances from an excellent cast. Brilliant!
