Young at Heart 1954 – Doris Day

Doris Day stars in this film and injects her usual happy and lively personality into it. For me she virtually carries the film even though she is surrounded by first rate, well known actors such as Ethel Barrymore and the excellent Gig Young

Of course, Frank Sinatra also starred but to me gave a particularly down-beat performance – maybe that was the character he was playing but it made the romance with him implausible to my way of thinking

Just look ABOVE Doris Day so bright and appealing – Frank Sinatra dour

ABOVE – Doris Day with Gig Young – he seemed much more lively

Doris Day and her family

ABOVE – Frank Sinatra lights yet another cigarette – he did way too much of that I thought

ABOVE – Ethel Barrymore keeps a watchful eye on her three girls including Doris Day as she shows of her engagement ring from Gig Young – that didn’t last long !!

Doris Day – Christmas at home with the family

Doris Day( ABOVE with Frank Sinatra) made quite a few films with Gig Young in the fifties including ‘Tunnel of Love’ , ‘Teachers Pet’ and this one ‘Young at Heart’.

I remember Gig Young coming over to England much later – in fact in 1967 – making a great horror film we probably all remember ‘The Shuttered Room’ Excellent and very scary
