What I like about this movie is that it makes you feel good without forcing it on you. The emotion is subtle and yet impacting. Crosby gives a charming performance, while Fitzgerald gives a classic and lovable one. I might add that both of them won Best Actor and Supporting Actor, respectively. The film won four other awards (Director, Song, Story, and Screenplay), all of which it rightly deserved.
