Box Office: $0.0M
PRINCIPAL CASTCary Grant, Myrna Loy, Shirley Temple, Rudy Vallee, Ray Collins, Harry Davenport
Through no fault of his own, artist and lady's man Richard Nugent finds a love-besotted teenage girl curled on his sofa. Through no fault of his own, the teen's sister is a judge who "sentences" thunderstruck Richard to date the girl until her schoolgirl crush wanes. Circumstances aren't kind to Richard. But they certainly are hilarious when Cary Grant plays Richard, Myrna Loy is the judge and Shirley Temple is the teen. Grant adopts the era's teen lingo, flub-foots through picnic races and clears one comedy hurdle after another in this irresistible winner of 1947's Best Original Screenplay Academy Award for Sidney Sheldon. Topping the fun is the cleverly escalated "Happy Birthday" dinner-club scene. You'll grin for days!
