      1954’s Young at Heart is one of my favorite movies. Interestly, though, I’ve changed how I liked it from when I was a little girl to how I like it as an adult. I always enjoyed it, but as a child, I wanted the resolution to the love triangle to be different than how it is. As an adult, after not having seen the film

      • been involved for a long time, but when Sinatra comes along, it throws a wrench into the mix.

        Ethel Barrymore is superb in her role. I actually love her with Sinatra. She’s that all-knowing mother figure who knows Sinatra better than he knows himself. It’s a great interaction. Dorothy Malone and Elisabeth Fraser play Day’s sisters, and are both very good. Their beaus are

        Alan Hale Jr. and Lonny Chapman. Chapman almost steals the show when he’s there. He was terrific in his part.

        I love the scenes with the dog because I’m a dog lover, and Day with a dog is a winning combination for me. The ending, as I said, is wonderful, and I love the signs of hope that come out of it. Young at Heart is superb.
