Needs to be on DVD
- Judith Boba
This movie needs to be on DVD for purchase from TCM. Make it happen.
THIS IS A CLASSIC! WHY ISN'T IT ON DVD?
- Jane C.
This is a very funny movie with Clifton Webb playing his Mr. Belvedere role, and Shirley Temple when she is a young adult. Shirley Temple is a young reporter with a child whose husband has been killed in WW II. It is a great story from both angles - Mr. Belvedere being his genius self and helping, by example, some young freshmen. And Shirley Temple as a young mother, trying to both go to school and make a living as a reporter. She has to learn where to draw the line when reporting news, and it's an interesting tale of growing up. This is a gem that, for some unknown reason, isn't on DVD yet! I can't understand why these great movies get overlooked and some very stupid movies get put on DVD?! This is a movie that old movie buffs would really enjoy.
Mr. Belvedere Goes to College (1949)
- Mr. Blandings
Clifton Webb reprises his role from Sitting Pretty, and he's very entertaining in this film, even though the plot itself isn't that engaging.
Mr. Belvedere Continues, Great Fun
- Mike Dudnikov
Great fun movie with Clifton Webb continuing his Mr. Belvedere character, who thinks he is so much smarter and more apt than you, because he actually is, and can't refrain from letting you know it. Lots of good character actors aboard, especially Alan Young in one of his earlier roles. And see if you recognize one of the police officers who arrests Belvedere. It is Jeff Chandler in a small uncredited role, just about the time his career was begining to take off. Saw the movie the night before 12/12/10 as part of a Belvedere double feature. Surprised Bob Osborne didn't mention it. The second feature, Mr. Belvdere Rings the Bell, about his attempts to save a depressed group of elderly residents of a home for the aged, also has a fine supporting cast especially Zero Mostel, who is quite funny. And again there is an actor we see in the very small role of a policeman, this time early in the movie. Just as in the other film it is in an uncredited role, and not noted by Bob. The actor here is Hugh Beaumont only a few years before garnering the role of Ward Cleaver in the great sitcom Leave It to Beaver.
SHIRLEY TEMPLE MEETS CLIFTON WEBB.
CLIFTON WEBB AND SHIRLEY TEMPLE STAR IN THIS FUN MOVIE ABOUT A MAN WHO GOES TO COLLEGE, QUICKLY ADVANCES THROUGH SCHOOL, AND GETS INVOLVED IN THE CENTER OF A LOVE AFFAIR BETWEEN A WIDOWED GIRL AND HER BOYFRIEND. CLIFTON WEBB DOES A GREAT JOB AS "MR. BELVEDERE", AND SHIRLEY TEMPLE IS VERY GOOD ALSO AS THE GIRL. SOLID CAST MAKES THIS MOVIE FUN TO WATCH.
