  • He just doesn't understand anything that seems to be making his daughter so darn happy

      In 1969, David Janssen, Kim Darby, and Pete Duel starred in Generation, a movie that truly is about the generation gap. Janssen is businessman Jim Bolton, who is stunned when his daughter, Doris (Darby), marries Walter Owen (Duel). Worse, she’s pregnant. Worse than that for Jim Bolton, his daughter and her husband plan to birth the child at home, in their barely-livable apartment.

      Janssen is

      great as the flustered, frustrated, and not-with-it wealthy member of the older generation. He just doesn’t understand anything that seems to be making his daughter so darn happy. He just can’t get through to Doris. He tries to get his friend, Stan Herman (Carl Reiner) to help out, but that’s a whole story itself. Janssen is good at comedy, much better than some ...

      • might think. It’s that bewildered demeanor he can take on that becomes so much fun to watch.

        Darby is great as she plays the confident young woman, trying to keep her father calm while staying true to what she believes. Her world is big and bright, and she doesn’t understand dad’s concerns.

        I adore Duel as Walter. He means well. Ultimately, as he goes forward,

        he finds a happy medium and he’s not afraid to admit when he’s taken on more than he can chew. He and Jim finally have a meeting of the minds.

        Generation is a lot of fun. It’s full of humorous moments, and the story is a positive one. The two generations manage to bridge the gap that might have separated them for good. It’s a good watch!
