Movie Info

Despite its alluring title, Bedtime Story is an innocent little domestic comedy about a bickering married couple. Fredric March is a successful playwright specializing in vehicles for his beautiful actress wife Loretta Young. Young wants to retire from the stage and set up housekeeping on a little Connecticut farm. March refuses to acknowledge her wishes and continues working on his latest play, which is being written for her. She petulantly walks out of the relationship, taking up with straitlaced banker Allyn Joslyn. One does not need a crystal ball to determine the outcome of all this, but Bedtime Story goes through its expected paces with finesse, helped along by such reliable supporting players as Robert Benchley and Eve Arden.

Audience Reviews for Bedtime Story


Cute romantic comedy with a good cast. It's a shame this was never released on VHS or DVD. Catch on Turner Classic Movies when you can.
