Description
Live and learn, the saying goes. Japanese businessman and widower Koichi Asano (Alec Guinness) and Brooklyn widow Bertha Jacoby (Rosalind Russell) are at an age when they’ve done a lot of living and learning. Now, with a bit of luck, love may reenter their lives – if they learn again the lessons of tolerance, forgiveness, kindness and devotion.
Russell and Guinness play unlikely romantics in this touching comedy based on the Broadway hit and directed by Mervyn LeRoy. Russell thought the role of Bertha was a radical departure for her. But she seized the challenge – and won the fourth of her five Best Actress Golden Globe? Awards. “In so many films, my comedy was brittle and came from the lips,” Russell said. “Here the humor stems from the heart – and Mrs. Jacoby’s heart is as big as the world.

          This has been always one of my favorites. Rosalind Russell and Alec Guinness are superb. I love the fact that it hits on issues of discrimination, bigotry and ignorance. Watch how people fear what they don't understand, very interesting. The friendship these two people develop is beautiful, the wisdom they both share is thought provoking. I absolutely loved this film.

                I saw this movie on TCM (television) and am telling my family and friends it is a MUST SEE! I believe that young people (preteen on up) will enjoy it as much as all other ages above that age group. A beautiful and touching story to experience!
