Default Today's Films: “young at heart” Blu-ray movie review

117 min | Not rated | Apr 08, 2014 (New Release)

The rare pairing of Hollywood and recording icons Doris Day and Frank Sinatra is available for the first time on Blu-ray via a new edition of the 1954 movie musical YOUNG AT HEART.


Young at Heart centers on a family headed by a music-loving patriarch (Robert Keith, Men in War) and his musically inclined daughters looking for romance. Doris Day (That Touch of Mink) plays the youngest daughter, Laurie, and Gig Young (City That Never Sleeps) plays Alex Burke, a likable composer who comes for an extended visit and eventually wins the hearts of all three sisters. Frank Sinatra (Come Blow Your Horn) plays Barney Sloan, a cynical songwriter hired by Alex to do arrangements for an upcoming Broadway show. The praiseworthy cast also includes Dorothy Malone (The Tarnished Angels) and Elisabeth Fraser (So Big) as the older sisters, Ethel Barrymore (Portrait of Jennie) as the family's matriarch and Alan Hale, Jr. (TV's Gilligan's Island) as Robert Neary, a successful businessman engaged to the oldest daughter (Malone). The first screen pairing of "Old Blue Eyes" and "America's Sweetheart" will have your heart smiling and your toes tapping with timeless tunes by the Gershwin brothers, Cole Porter and Johnny Mercer. Young at Heart was directed by Gordon Douglas (Only the Valiant) and beautifully shot in color by the great Ted D. McCord (The Sound of Music, East of Eden).

Doris Day and Frank Sinatra star in this remake of the 1938 hit "Four Daughters."
In this version, Gregory Tuttle has just three daughters, one of whom falls for a melancholy musician named Barney Sloan. But she's already betrothed to Alex Burke, the man who hired Barney to arrange the music for a musical comedy. That doesn't prevent Laurie and Barney from eloping. But his insecurity is so deep and so destructive it nearly costs them their happiness... and his life.
Features a classic song score, performed by Day and Sinatra.

Doris Day is a small-town girl who helps a jaded and struggling musician (Frank Sinatra) find happiness through her love and support. Ethel Barrymore gives a fine supporting performance. A remake of 1938's "Four Daughters."

40th Anniversary Edition is digitally mastered from the original film negative and includes the original theatrical trailer.

Additional song composers: Don Pippin and Al Rinker.

Several new songs were written for the film.

Filmed in three-strip Technicolor.

Remake of the 1938 film "Four Daughters," actor John Garfield's film debut, directed by Michael Curtiz.

"...[The music] is tops..."
