Movie Info

In this generation gap movie of the early 1960s, Sandra Dee is Mollie Michaelson, a teenage rebel enamored with long-haired hippies and radical anti-nuclear political causes. Her involvement in such activities sends her ultra-conservative father Frank (James Stewart) into a tizzy. His reassuring wife is played by Audrey Meadows. Frank's furor deepens when Mollie is sent to Paris on an art scholarship. Back at home, Frank picks up a popular magazine and finds that his daughter has posed on the cover for a radical artist, Henri Bonnet (Philippe Forquet). He pursues her to save her from further degradation, but he ends up in a café in the wrong part of Paris just as it is raided by police. They arrest him on trumped-up and erroneous charges, and he struggles to prove that he's not guilty. This film was based on a play by Phoebe Ephron and Henry Ephron.more

Audience Reviews for Take Her, She's Mine


The kind of part Jimmy Stewart could play in his sleep, the befuddled dad, but cute of its type.

Super Reviewer


Jimmy Stewart delivers father role with witty commentary. Forget the RT review, this isn't about a girl taking up with long haired hippies! Hey, its 1963 in the Beatnik era when folk and causes were just starting. Jimmy Stewart plays the ever worried father of a very sought after daughter. The movie has lots of cliche moments and funny dialog. Bob Denver of Gilligan's Island and Dobbie Gillis has a bit role as a coffee shop poet with guitar.


You can see a clip of Bob Denver here as the then unknown at the time:

While about an hour too long for me I got the general idea of the plot in the first 20 minutes. But its generally a feel good film about parents and their older kids and quite true too!

1 On November 22, 1963, a promotional commercial featuring Sandra Dee was aired on KLIF Radio in Dallas, Texas following one of the first reports concerning the shootings of President John F. Kennedy and Texas Governor John Connally. Shortly after this commercial, KLIF suspended all regular programming and commercials for continuous developments which would evolve into the official announcement of Kennedy's death.

2 The original Broadway production of Take Her, She's Mine played at the Biltmore Theatre on Broadway and ran for 404 performances from December 21, 1961, to December 8, 1962.

An anxious father (Jimmy Stewart) worries about his daughter's (Sandra Dee) virtue as she comes of age and starts hanging out with beatniks and protesters.
Moderately funny. Bob Denver appears looking exactly like his Dobie Gillis character, but this is a bit better than that series.
