Movie Info

Based on a story by Paddy Chayefsky, this is the tale of a man who is being forced to retire from his job, at the age of 65, and decides to fight back. Impersonating the head of the company, he sets out to convince them to get rid of their outmoded retirement policy and gives a creditable speech on the dignity of man, gaining national attention. This movie features good performances, but it will probably be remembered more for the bit part played by a young Marilyn Monroe as the boss' secretary.

Audience Reviews for As Young as You Feel

A sweet satire film where the main character dictates the entire flow of the movie. It was so funny, but not the kind of funny that will put you to tears or blow you away. The entire cast was good, and I think each of them said the words "Consolidated Motors" at least 5 times each. Good film.
