Kitty W This is a philosophical love story (stating the obvious), but it isn't just romantic love - there are at least 7 or 8 facets of love that are addressed here, ‘academically,' one could say. The philosophical arguments for the love of anything are excellent. Placing this movie on my little pile of favorites! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 08/22/22 Full Review Audience Member a nice sweet comedy, thats all :) Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/16/23 Full Review Audience Member sweet rom-com of sorts Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member Jeanne Crain is excellent as the title character. Cute and amusing, heartbreaking as well, Edmund Gwenn is a delight in a supporting role. Pleasant score. A sincere and well meaning story Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/18/23 Full Review Audience Member Jeanne Crain is in overdrive with her super energetic speeches. You begin to understand that if her instructions were just followed then her husbands mind would be at ease & life will get better. She meets a lonely professor who wants to commit suicide, but Jeanne know just the best ways to cheer him up & she convinces him that she should move in his attic with her husband.
