Penny Serenade

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.

As Julie prepares to leave her husband Roger, she begins to play through a stack of recordings, each of which reminds her of events in their lives together. One of them is the song that was playing when she and Roger first met in a music store. Other songs remind her of their courtship, their marriage, their desire for a child, and the joys and sorrows that they have shared. A flood of memories comes back to her as she ponders their present problems and how they arose. Written by Snow Leopard

“Cary Grant is at his most charming and gives a very amusing and, at times, very very touching performance as a new dad.

She was a great "straight-man," too, to Cary Grant's more animated role. I truly love this film.” read more
