A romantic comedy featuring two of the biggest singers of their day, Andy Williams and Robert Goulet. This quaint sixties comedy is SO period a piece that early sixties fans will love it and many today will wonder just what was so good about it. Well, I guess you had to be aware of the times and the actors in this so so romantic comedy.

The film focuses on a dying man who wishes to meet his granddaughter's fiancé, but he is unavailable, so the woman persuades another man to substitute for him. Then the grandfather recovers."--wikipedia [img]https://www.movieposter.com/posters/archive/main/29/MPW-14880[/img] Andy Williams and Robert Goulet, though superstar male vocalists in the day are excellent actors in this very period romantic comedy SO typical of the early 1960's.
