In addressing these unsubstantiated charges, Frank attributes all the incidents on his eldest daughter, Mollie Michaelson, now just shy of her twentieth birthday, no longer being the sweet child he had always pictured her as, but now rather a desirable young woman. Frank and his wife Anne first noticed Mollie blossoming into such when she went away to college, first to Hawthorne, a girls' college in New England and then to a prestigious art school in Paris.

Quotes

Frank Michaelson: I was watching this movie on TCM, and during the scene at the sit in where Stewart's character is talking to Sandra Dee's character, you can clearly see James Stewart's character use the four letter S word. It was after he used the word MONKEY. " I won't put up with any of this monkey s... t. You can read his lips as he says it and TCM took the audio of that word out. I was stunned when I saw this.

Loved it!
12 September 2002 | by catchclawSee all my reviews

An all around fun movie from a time when they didn't have to rely on foul language, sex, and violence for their plots. I had never seen Sandra Dee in anything other than her Gidget roles. Wish they made movies like that today - a comedy that was actually funny. :)
