The Bachelor and the Bobby Soxer stars Cary Grant, Myrna Loy, Shirley Temple, Ray Collins, Rudy Vallee, and Johnny Sands in this 1947 film. The film is about bachelor Richard Nugent(Grant), whose whole intention in life is to be carefree but when Judge Margaret Turner(Loy) and her sister Susan interrupt his life, his life turned completely upside down. When Susan sees Richard, she immediately grows infatuated with him but the feeling is definitely not the same for him. Margaret and her Uncle Matt(Collins) come up with a plan for Richard to end Susan's crush on him. The plan is that Susan and Richard spend as much time together as they can and hoping with that idea, that the crush dies away. When I first saw this movie, I despised it... actually probably worse than despise. Anytime this movie was on, I would immediately change the channel but I've had a change of heart. The previous time, I had seen this, I also really couldn't stand Myrna Loy. Can you believe it? Me, disliking Myrna Loy? What a preposterous idea now after all, she's my favorite actress. I had thought she was snooty, and a better than everyone type of actress but I was greatly mistaken. Myrna Loy is such a superb actress and such a lovely lady. If I write anymore on her, I might make this entire post on her! Hahaha anyway.. onto the movie. Second time around, I loved it. I thought it was so funny and when the movie wasn't being stolen by Grant and Loy, it was stolen by Ray Collins. He was so hysterical, seriously that man had some of the funniest moments in the movie. I love his little wisecracks and the way, he stays cool while everyone else is heated. I'm glad, I gave this movie a second chance because I would have certainly been missing out, on such a grand comedy!
