Physical Description

1 videodisc (91 minutes) : sound, black and white ; 4 3/4 in.


Not rated.


An acrobatically inclined free spirit, following a whirlwind engagement, literally tumbles into the lives of his fianče's aristocratic family, setting up a clash of values with her staid father while firing the rebellious imagination of her brash, black-sheep sister. With a sparkling surface and an undercurrent of melancholy, the film is an enchanting ode to nonconformists and pie-in-the-sky dreamers everywhere, as well as a thoughtful reflection on what it truly means to live well.


From the play by Philip Barry.

Originally released as a motion picture in 1930.
