Audience Reviews for The Young in Heart

  • Sep 18, 2014
    I'm thinking that O. Selznick must've thought Americans soft on the Brits as here is yet another production of his wherein Brits succeeding in America is a major plot point. A family of con artists set their greasy sights on one kindly but lonely old woman ... this cannot turn out well. Or can it? Given the transparency of the cookie-cut plot still all do okay in their assigned tasks. Fairbanks Jr., I realise for the first time, got along as sort of a second class Ronald Colman, and you can see him crudely working that here. Goddard and Burke, w/o much to work with, merely sorta glide along using their established stage personas, as does Stephenson, too (as entertaining as those personas are). All in all not a lot of work done. The story of the redemptive power of trust does the job all on its own.

    This movie has good actors, good story, humor, and drama. It's really enjoyable, and you learn a lot about life too. This movie is sweet, and sorta predictable, but it doesn't over do it.
