Audience Reviews for Joy in the Morning


Charming, if at times a little melodramatic, tale of a young couple trying to make it despite family pressure and other issues. Yvette Mimieux is excellent here, one of the to few chances she got to display her talent. Chamberlain is earnest if a bit bland, he does however sing the title song surprisingly well. A lovely little known gem.
