Let's Make It Legal (1951) - That Was Before We Were Married First scene for improbably handsome Robert (“R-J”) Wagner as Jerry, spouse of drowsy Barbara (Bates) who, we learn, is more comfortable than he about living with her mother (Claudette Colbert as Miriam), whose divorce is about to become official, and whose gardener (Jim Hayward) just tangled with her husband, early in Let’s Make It Legal, 1951.

Suddenly (1954) - Nothing Wrong Yet At this point, as far as we know Baron (Frank Sinatra) and posse (Paul Frees, Christopher Dark) might be legitimate, as they visit Ellen (Nancy Gates), son Pidge (Kim Carney) and Pops (James Gleason) before a still-secret presidential visit to a California town called Suddenly, 1954.
Suddenly (1954) - She Doesn't Like Guns Opening scene, Sterling Hayden is Tod, the sheriff, Pidge (Kim Charney) the son of widowed Ellen (Nancy Gates) of whom, we learn, the sheriff is enamored, in a small California town for which the movie is named, Suddenly, the 1954 assassination drama co-starring Frank Sinatra.
