George Stevens, known for A Place in the Sun (1951) and Giant (1956), directs Cary Grant and Irene Dunne in this heart-wrenching tale of a couple who want nothing more than to start a family. When they find out they’re unable to become pregnant, they turn to adoption. There aren’t too many films about adoption in general, let alone during the Golden Age of Hollywood, when adoption was perceived as shameful. But Penny Serenade managed to make it to screens and shine a positive light on the less-than-traditional approach.
Kick off your shoes, put your feet up and enjoy this heart-warming classic movie.
