Movie Info

Though the title suggests that this film is a musical romance built around the song hit of the same name, Second Time Around is actually a comedy western. Debbie Reynolds plays a young widow who in 1912 moves with her children to a wild and wooly Arizona town. At first having trouble coming to grips with frontier life, Reynolds adjusts quite well--to the extent that she is appointed sheriff. She is courted by Andy Griffith and Steve Forrest, both of whom ride to the rescue when Reynolds bites

Audience Reviews for The Second Time Around

Cute comedy with Debbie as a widow out west trying to make a place for herself and bring her children to live and ending up as sherrif. Helped immeasureably as always by having the great Thelma Ritter in the cast.
