This is primarily a romantic drama, not really a comedy nor a musical, although several musical numbers are included, including Betty Hutton's rendition of "That Old Feeling" on the reunion stage, clearly directed at Dana Andrews' character: Fred Davis, whom she sometimes dated when they were in high school. Fred was voted 'most likely to succeed', while Betty(as Maggie) was voted 'most popular girl'. Well, 15 years later, neither has been married, nor has any serious prospects: unusual for such a handsome guy and beautiful woman. So, why? Fred has spent his time toying at odd jobs in various places, and lavishing time on his sail boat, which he keeps next to his house on the waterfront. He hasn't had the urge to settle down and raise a family, although he has returned to Carson for a spell. Maggie has spent her 15 years working with her dad as a real estate agent, traveling, etc.. He doesn't want to lose her help , thus discourages romantic prospects who want to take her elsewhere......Fred isn't much interested in the school reunion, but goes to please Maggie, who looks forward to it. Meanwhile, Maggie's married school friend Barna(Jean Hagen), minus her husband, is staying overnight at Maggie's parents house. At the reunion, she flirts with married ex-football hero Jack Frazer(Gordon Jones), who's being boorish, having brought reams of films of his old football games, which he expects others to watch. Seems that was the pinnacle of his life, so far. Barma and Jack, along with Maggie and Fred, go to Fred's house for some moonlight strolling along the beach. Fred and Maggie kiss a few times, then go for a sailboat outing, which almost turns disastrous, as it develops a substantial leak. Meanwhile, Jack doesn't get very far with Barma. Fred talks about going to San Francisco in the morning for a job prospect. Maggie frets about the prospect of leaving the family business, and whether Fred is truly ready to settle down. Nonetheless, in the morning, she announces to her family that she and Fred plan to be married.......I can't really recommend this film as being a must see, even for Betty or Dana fans. We can rightfully guess how it's going to end, both for Maggie and Fred, and for Barma and Jack, and getting there isn't exactly exciting, save for the leaky boat. It had been 5 years since Betty's last film, and she seems more mature, lacking the youthful hyperactivity and comedy that attracted audiences, along with her straight and clownish singing. Unfortunately, there wasn't really anyone else who was terribly interesting. This was the last Hollywood film for both Betty, and for blond Laura La Plant, who played Betty's mother, She was, in fact, 17years older than Betty. They looked very much like a well-preserved mother and daughter combination, unlike many film combinations.......As some others have pointed out, it's true that many of the men players were in their 40s, rather than the expected 33 years. But, most, including Dana and Gordon, still looked young enough to be possibly 33.
