365 Movies: Together Again Review

Together Again stars Irene Dunne, Charles Boyer, Charles Coburn, and Mona Freeman in this 1944 film. After her dead husband's statue is destroyed, Mayor Anne Crandall(Dunne) looks for another sculpture. What she finds is a very charming Frenchman named George(Boyer) and there is immediate chemistry between the two. Anne's overly whiny step-daughter Diana(Freeman) is so over the top, she really puts a downer on the film. The storyline is so-so with feeling of "Theodora goes Wild" and "The Bachelor and the Bobby-Soxer" mixed into it, and both of those films were much better, than this one. The humor in this was kind of dry, but the teaming of Dunne, Boyer, and Coburn was absolutely brilliant.

I agree with Rena. I love this film. It's funny, clever, and I love Mona Freeman's over-the-top teen.
