  • Lovely and sweet film!

    You can't help liking this film. It's simple and the actors are wonderful. Sometimes, you just want to watch something where people are people, nobody is killed and there is nothing to figure out. Glenn Ford is great as the father who goes for the glittery, shining thing, aka Dina Merrill, when the real diamond is right next door in the form of Shirley Jones. Leave it to the child to see the difference and make it known to his rather dense father. Over my Sunday morning paper and coffee, I watched this film again for the umpteenth time and I still enjoyed it.

    The actors and actresses are exquisite.Ronny Howard actually is courshipping for his father Glenn Ford(Tom). Stella Stevens and Norman are the perfect match.Norm hits his last bat and ball when he captures Stella's intellegence over her beauty and I watch this movie at least 2 times per week.I am currently trying to locate the song by Victor Young and score by George Stoll, "The Butterfly and the Rose." Five Star rating

    Okay little film. Ford is dull, though. Howard is cute and sweet. Jones is endearing. Van Dyke and Sherwood shine.Merrill is beautiful. Stevens is annoying.

    As a child I was used to the weekly TV Series and had a hard time watching the movie.Years later watching the it was fun. Made for a nice Sunday afternoon.

  • Courtship very much like Sleepless in Seatle

    I just love this movie. I love watching Ronnie Howard, Glenn Ford and Shirley Jones. Of course Jerry Van Dyke and Stella Steven are great, love the bowling and drum scene. Dina Merrill is beautiful.Has anyone notice how similiar Sleepless in Seattle's plot is to this one. Widow's son's plays matchmaker, the son's both want one girl, they both run away. Neither son likes the girlfriend, one has squinty eyes and the other has a terrible laugh. I could go on and on. Watch Courtship and then watch Sleepless. Nora Ephron did the samething here as she did with Shop Around the Corner and You've Got Mail. I love all these movies.

  • Awesome Movie!

    I really enjoyed seeing this movie. Ron Howard is the CUTEST little thing. The way he puts things in perspective and the way he says it is priceless. Glenn Ford played wonderfully in the movie. The cast complimented each other very well. I strongly suggest seeing this movie, it's soooo funny. One of the reasons that I love the movie is simply because Ron Howard appears in it. I've only seen it twice on TCM, I hope TCM would play this movie more often, it would be much appreciated, believe me this movie is GOOD!
