Penny Serenade

8 months ago at Aug 16 14:26
I’ve said it once, and I’m sure I’ll say it a hundred more times: star power can make or break a film. Penny Serenade isn’t a bad film, or even a bad story. In fact, a quiet and absorbing drama could have been made using this story, this director and these actors. But somewhere along the way, Penny Serenade decided it wanted a huge dollop of unnecessary schmaltz added on top, and that is w... read more

Filmsite Greatest Tearjerkers Scenes/Movie Moments (318 movies items)

"The heart-warming scenes, told in flashback, of childless parents Roger Adams (Cary Grant) and his wife Julie (Irene Dunne) who brought home an adopted baby girl - their nervousness about keeping quiet and their exhaustion after getting up all night with it, and later the heart-wrenching scene of the aftermath for the heartbroken couple following the death of their six-year-old child Trina."
