Watch Young at Heart - Alternative Versions.
The three adult daughters of a Connecticut music teacher are anxious to
encounter love and marriage. Each of them gets to the altar, but fate deals
them some strange experiences along the way.
Laurie, Amy and Fran (Doris Day, Elisabeth Fraser and Dorothy Malone,
respectively) choose men of widely contrasting personalities. Laurie plumps
for Alex (Gig Young), the tall, handsome extrovert with musical ability.
Fran settles for Bob, the dependable realtor (Alan Hale). If Amy's choice
is a surprising one, it is ultimately vindicated by events. Then, of
course, there is the surprise elopement ...
"Homes like these are the backbone of the nation," wisecracks Barney,
the sarcastic interloper. His working-class Italian American sense of irony
soon clashes with Laurie's blonde bourgeois rectitude. Barney describes
himself as a 'stumblebum', and the part of the sharp-tongued loser is ideal
for nighclub-singing, self-despising Frank Sinatra. "Pressed pants are
constitutional in Connecticut," explains Laurie as she endeavours to reform
the world-weary Barney, but Barney will never fit comfortably into
Connecticut's refined social setting.
Songs are what the film is all about. No fewer than two songwriters
attach themselves to the musical Tuttle girls, and the action is frequently
punctuated by singing. Sinatra and Day even get to promote their latest Hit
Parade offerings. The title song is deservedly famous, and Frankie does two
excellent torch songs - the first in classic Sinatra mode, alone in a bar
with an upright piano and a hat on the back of his head for a rueful
rendition of Porter's "Just One Of Those Things", the other a night club
crooning of the one and only "Set 'Em Up Joe".
The film has a great look. Shot by Director of Photography Ted McCord
in a sumptuously rich Warnercolor, the images are pleasing to the eye. The
'puppy' scene which introduces Laurie to Alex is especially attractive. It
seems always to have been a term of La Day's contracts that she must get to
wear pretty clothes, and here the effect is sensational as she flounces past
a blue house in a radiant orange New Look dress.
The set of the Tuttles' suburban avenue is breath-taking. A 'real'
street with gardens and picket fences was constructed on Warners' back lot,
and we see it transforming as the seasons turn. The location scene, the
clam-bake on the beach, is one of the film's best-looking
Though this is merely a popular musical, there are none the less some
touches of artistic flair. As the theme song and the credits come to a
close, Gregory Tuttle 'lifts' the tune from the titles and into the action
by playing it on his flute in the living-room. Barney remains outside the
circle of birthday well-wishers, showing us that this easy domestic
affection is alien to him. The significance of Alex not being able to tie
his knot is a nice little comment on what is about to unfold. Throughout
the Christmas banter between Alex and the Tuttle clan, we see nothing of the
action, because the camera remains doggedly fixed on the detached Barney,
his reaction being the only one that matters to us.
There are few quibbles, and they are only minor ones. The pianist who
doubles for Sinatra sits in a bolt-upright posture, totally unlike the
Sinatra Slouch. Laurie's behaviour towards Alex is appalling, and unworthy
of a romantic heroine. Consequently, the 'forgiveness' scene doesn't ring
true. The method employed by Barney to solve everyone's problems, and its
actual result, are utterly unbelievable.
Verdict - A homely, attractive musical with some outlandish plot
