| dated but fun Russell and Carson
Some big, fun hollywood names in this one, once we get there. This opens with the funeral of "Dad", and we see a bit of him in flashbacks. Rosalind Russell is "Louise", who grows up with Mother and sis. The awesome Alan Hale is in here for about a minute, as "Lew", the big boss. (Hale died at 57, a couple years after this, but wow, what a career.) Louise is a firecracker, and her (first) husband doesn't like it, although they DID manage to raise a litter of kids before he bailed. THEN... Louise met Harold (Jack Carson), and it was Love at first sight. A biography that moves right along. Apparently the son Frank was a writer/director, and had won an oscar for best screenplay. Perfect casting with Russell, as she was also the fast talking reporter in "His Girl Friday". It's pretty good. A little dated, but its fun to watch Russell and Carson do their stuff. Directed by the "pro", Michael Curtiz, about the same time as Mildred Pierce, Life with Father, and Night and Day. Oddly enough, this was written by Louise Pierson, so clearly this is the story of her own life!
