This is a great, lighthearted, fun movie! For a contemporary, younger generation, it's probably just too much. But the generation for whom this movie was made, a generation that went thru a war that just killed 60 plus million poeple world wide, it was a simple, fun-loving, fresh, happy, 'the-future-did-look-brighter-and-new-days-were-coming' type of movie. It touches a wonderfully simple sense of love enough times to leave you in a better frame of mind once you have finished the last moments of the film.

Format: DVD
This is a review for MY DEAR SECRETARY (1948) written & directed by Charles Martin. The nearly forgotten Lorraine Day co-stars in this fast paced later day screwball comedy as a wanna be pro writer named Stephanie Gaylord taking a secretarial job with best-sellling home officed writer Owen Waterbury played by Kirk Douglas.

Mr. Waterbury's success seems to come from the fact that he is so poorly organized he doesn't know whether he's coming or going and no one else seems to know either.

Finally Stephanie threatens to leave and to get her to stay, the playboy best seller offers to marry her. Wildly unbeleivable story buttressed by fine performances from all in the cast especially Keenan Wynne. Well done comedy with more than a few gaps in logic and believability.

I rate it Three and One Half Stars.

For those of you who may have stumbled on this movie by accident, let me tell you that for the price you won't find a better movie. The comedy is sharp and the dialogue is better than any episode of Frasier. Wynn rules as the Godfather Of All Slackers: "If you have the opportunity to get paid for doing nothing then grab it, you fool!".

My favorite line in this movie is towards the end when she (Steve or Stephanie) talks about her "school girl crush"...I LOVE it. Good movie and if you like the old black and whites...this is a good one for your collection. See "footsteps" for the speech I love.

This movie was a gift from my sister -in-law some time back and since the first time I watched it I found that it was a hilarious surprise to me! I had never seen Kirk Douglas in a comedic role before and can't recommend this movie enough!

This is a great movie plus it has a plot. Keenan Wynn who plays Kirk's best friend is hilarious and this movie even has Irene Ryan (Granny on Beverly Hillbillies) maybe in her 30's, singing a little tune

Love the old decor and clothes. One of the weakest roles I've seen for Kirk Douglas. I like the ending, but won't spoil it if you haven't seen it yet.

This is obviously very early in Kirk Douglas career. Laraine Day the female lead I first saw her in an old John Wayne movie, called Tycoon! It is Awesome and in color from the forties. She was absolutely stunning in that movie. This movie was cute and somewhat funny. I am not that old, however, as a Christian, one has to work hard to find 'decent movies' to watch. I am glad I bought it, when I have time, I will watch it again. I am grateful to Amazon for making these old movies available.
