The radio show "Breakfast with Irene and Roger" is most likely based on the real life radio show "Breakfast with Dorothy and Dick," starring Dorothy Killgallen and her husband Richard Kollmar, which was broadcast on WOR-AM (New York) radio from 1945 through 1963. See more »

It's so beautiful. Boy, what a world... it could be so wonderful, if it wasn't for certain people.

Yes, the movie is well-done, with great sets, fabulous timing on the part of the cast, nostalgic feel, etc. For those of us who weren't around yet during the radio age it's a great opportunity to see why our parents look back on the era wistfully. But the music is great! I had to go out and buy the soundtrack on CD. Wonderful.
