From the Back Cover

Two Bing Classics! In "Just For You," widower Jordan Blake (Bing Crosby) has had wild success as a Broadway producer, but not much as a father. To win back their affection, he decides to take one last vacation with his kids. (Bob Arthur, Natalie Wood) before they're not "kids" anymore. But that's when Blake discovers that his son may have grown up sooner than Dad anticipated--he's fallen in love with his father's girlfriend, a musical-comedy star (Jane Wyman)! This lively film also stars Ethel Barrymore and features the Oscar-nominated tune "Zing A Little Zong." And when Bing zings, everyone has a great time.

"Here Comes the Groom": With the legendary Frank Capra ("It's a Wonderful Life") in the director's seat, the inimitable Bing Crosby stars as an overseas reporter with a song in his heart...and room left over for two war orphans. They are his to adopt, if he can find a bride in just five days! His former fiancée is the perfect candidate, but she's destined to marry millionaire Franchot Tone. Or is she? Among the highlights of this sparkling musical romp is Der Bingle's crooning of the Oscar-winning song, "In The Cool, Cool Of The Evening."

5.0 out of 5 stars Sock Crosby-Wyman tint tuner July 27, 2004
Yes, Its Bing Crosby and Jane Wyman in a colorful, tuneful musical comedy - Just for You (1952) The songs are excellent and include the lively Zing a Little Zong as well as The Live Oak Tree, I'll Si Si Ya in Bahia and a Mexican Ballet sequence. In the picture Bing is having trouble with his teenage children, played by Robert Arthur and Natalie Wood. Ethel Barrymore appears in the picture as a school headmistress cum motor mechanic, specialising in starting tricky outboard motors! Excellent fun all the way. The film does, however, have its serious moments and makes a good point regarding the music publishing business.

Here Comes the Groom was made in 1951 in Black & White. This is an excellent musical comedy (Directed by Frank Capra) with serious moments. Alex Smith appears in the picture and a rival to Jane Wyman for Bing's affections. Songs include In the Cool Cool Cool of the Evening, Your Own Little House, Misto Christopher Columbus and Bonne Nuit. There are a few cameo guest appearances.

The quality is excellent especially considering the material is over 50 years old. The double bill is good value for money. Enjoy!

4.0 out of 5 stars Warm fuzzies to spare. August 29, 2005
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Fans of the great Bing Crosby will certainly enjoy this double bill from the early 1950's. With the Hollywood studios reeling from the effects of television, the House On UnAmerican Activites Committee, and the war in Korea, "Here Comes The Groom/Just For You" were and are better than average musical fare both then and now. Both films find Mr. Crosby in splendid voice with better than average song material such as "Zing a Little Zong" and the Oscar winning "In the Cool,Cool,Cool of the Evening." Famed director Frank Capra, who gave us such American classics as "You Can't Take It With You" and the holiday favorite "It's A Wonderful Life" elevates "Here Comes The Groom" out of the level of routine studio fare while Elliott Nugent wraps a twenty year career behind the camera with his jewel-like "Just For You." In addition to Crosby, both films feature the radiant Jane Wyman and a number of major stars to include Franchot Tone and Ethel Barrymore along with rising stars Natalie Wood and Anna Maria Alberghetti. Like another Bing Crosby double film offering, "Holiday Inn/Going My Way", "Here Comes The Groom/Just For You" serves as a pleasant reminder just how much fun movie musicals were and still are.

4.0 out of 5 stars 2 ON 1 January 12, 2006
JUST FOR YOU is mainly a vehicule for JANE WYMAN and BING CROSBY who had great chemistry together.We all know how it's gonna end and the plot is a little melodramatic.Nevertheless,it is a rather pleasant affair.After a very shaky start,HERE COMES THE GROOM becomes hilarious and shows CAPRA getting the most of all his actors.It is the only film of the fifties whose highlight is a wrestling match between two women.BING has a field day in this part and it's easy to understand why the director thought that he was a fabulous actor.The producers certainly knew that IN THE COOL,COOL,COOL OF THE EVENING was going to be a hit.If you like BING but never saw this movie,you are missing something.

3.0 out of 5 stars Bing at a bargain March 8, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
There are no special features here, and the "Groom" film is in black and white, but for Bing Crosby or old-fashioned musical fans, you can't go wrong with this at a bargain price. The "Groom" film features the Oscar-winning song "In the Cool Cool of the Evening" (fun lyrics by Johnny Mercer) and it's a treat. Who knew Jane Wyman could sing!? The movie plot is sappy and entirely predictable, but as in many of his roles, Bing adds just a touch of jazzy hip flourishes.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love one of the movies! June 12, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I bought this for Here Comes the Groom which stars Jane Wyman and Bing. I love this movie. Bing is a guy with commitment issues and Jane is his girlfriend who wants a commitment NOW. She's waited several years and she's ready for wedding bells. Just about the time that Bing comes home with two orphans, ready for commitment, she has broken up with him and found someone else. It's a fun musical and the kids are adorable.

4.0 out of 5 stars Crosby and Capra and Wyman, oh my ! April 16, 2013
As a fan of Frank Capra, I had to see "Here Comes the Groom," even though it's one of the postwar ones that everybody knocks. So I was pleasantly surprised when -- but I'm getting ahead of myself.

Paramount has an interesting pair of films here. Made one year apart, both star Bing Crosby and Jane Wyman and both are 50's musicals. Beyond that the difference is striking. One's in color; the other isn't. One is quite good, and the other . . .

Let's start with "Just for You." Bing plays a Broadway impresario who is personally and professionally attached to his leading lady, played by Jane Wyman. The fly in the ointment is Bing's two teenaged children, who have been neglected by their widower father. Bing tries to make up by spending more time with his son, who falls in love with Wyman. (Are you laughing yet?) The flawed conceit of the script requires an actress to be old enough that Bing isn't "robbing the cradle," yet young enough to appeal to his 18 year old son. Wyman may be lovely, but not enough to appeal to someone literally half her age. (Side note: the actor playing Bing's son has such a baby face, that seeing him in suits makes him look like a little boy playing "dress up.") Natalie Wood, who plays Bing's daughter, was in-between the cuteness of "Miracle on 34th St" and the vivaciousness of "Rebel Without a Cause." The biggest problem, however, is she is hardly given anything to do. Ethel Barrymore and Natalie's drunken governess do their best to keep things lively and there's a nice musical number, "I'll Si-Si Ya in Bahia" but overall, this one just WASN'T for me.

Next is "Here Comes the Groom." Made a year earlier and in black and white, "Groom" is far superior. Much of the credit must go to director Frank Capra.
