Mitchum's interplay with Leigh is a sweet treat, carrying the movie through its more routine segments.
It's perfect for those who like their holiday films retro, sweet and as laid-back as Mitchum.
"Holiday Affair" is a sweet if slight film revolving around a love triangle (or more accurately, a love pentagram) as a war widow (Janet Leigh) is romanced by two opposing suitors: one, an ideal companion and father for her young son, the other, an impulsive and brash (yet charming) idealist (Robert Mitchum), who is noble almost to a fault. Wendell Corey plays the widow's next door neighbor, loyal and doting, pretending not to notice (so blinded he is by love) that his affections aren't returned in quite the same ardent fashion. A chance meeting with suitor #2 and it's clear which one she could fall for. But he is wary of entering a relationship with a woman so clearly pining away for her dead husband. In the end, it's not between suitors the woman must choose, but between the living and the dead.
I think I liked this movie so much because of Tim, who is really a swell kid. One might believe that Connie has to choose between two men in her life, but Tim is the one who takes the final decision.
I also enjoyed breakfast in the park, when unexpected things can happen to those warm hearted who take care of orphan squirrels.
A cute, but predictable, romantic comedy with a good cast.
