(aka "Deux Soeurs vivaient en paix" )

 

directed by Irving Reis
USA 1947

 

Through no fault of his own, artist and lady's man Richard Nugent finds a love-besotted teenage girl curled on his sofa. Through no fault of his own, the teen's sister is a judge who "sentences" thunderstruck Richard to date the girl until her schoolgirl crush wanes. Circumstances aren't kind to Richard. But they certainly are hilarious when Cary Grant plays Richard, Myrna Loy is the judge and Shirley Temple is the teen.

Theatrical Release: 1 September 1947

Comments

The Warner is miles ahead showing good film grain where the Montparnasse is quite softened. There is some minor cropping on the left edge of the Montparnasse. Extras are superior on the Warner. This is a no-contest. Warner all the way!
