The Bachelor and the Bobby-Soxer (1947) Review

A high school girl Susan Turner falls for Dick Nugent a playboy artist.


*New Title – Bachelor Knight*

The more I watch Cary Grant the more I find myself being in love with him. He is so charming and just gorgeous all of the time. Totally different to current day actors.

I have to admit that I had never heard of this movie before, but again thanks to Netflix I have found another movie which I probably would never have watched unless it was on the watch instantly feature on the site. The obvious draw to this movie was Cary Grant, but also with Shirley Temple being in it too. As she has such a reputation, I thought the storyline sounded very nice as well.

So Cary grant is Richard aka a bachelor who Susan (Shirley Temple) a 17 year old believes she is in love with him, her sister Margaret (Myrna Loy) did not want her sister to get hurt after going through different things in her life. So they get Richard to “date” Susan despite the age gap between them. Some very amusing comedy moments in this movie include Cary Grant, when they were competiting in activites at the picnic.

It was pretty obvious that Margaret and Richard were going to end up liking each other, as they did not get on when they first met and throughout the time Richard had to take out Susan to avoid going to prison for a miss understanding involving Susan.

I just think there is something so innocent and sweet about older movies, especially when there is no mention of sex and it is just nice and lovely throughout. This is definatly a movie I would recommend to others as it really was very nice to watch. Cary Grant is more becoming a favorite of mine.
