    I loved every moment of that movie. I'm wondering if anyone knows the title of the Piano Piece that played in that movie.

    I just recently saw this movie for the first time and I love it! I have it on demand on our cable and watch it a lot. Love old movies and this one has become one of my top 10.

    Well acted drama, great cast but certainly not one of my favorite Spencer Tracy or George Cukor films. Nice period detail, good score and great costume design. I would have expected more from the talent involved, but it's still good.

    This film features a sharp, funny and absorbing script (based on Ruth Gordon's autobiographical play), beautiful direction by Cukor, and at the head of a terrific cast Spencer Tracy giving one of his very best performances. He imbues this tyrannical, cantankerous miser with so much soul that you learn to like and forgive him. Jean Simmons is marvelous, too, and there are so many classic lines. It also boasts Anthony Perkins' screen debut. A must for many reasons!
