Take The Great Depression, unknown actors, snippets of Pygmalion, and you have a Capra film that is part "senior citizen Cinderella." With cinematography that resembles the silent era, believable performances, and low-key comedy, this is a delightful film that leaves you with a smile.
Best scene in the film for me was when three characters in the film hang out, poke fun at each other, and wax grotesque philosophies. That gets a star and the fact there is a character named and referred to as Dude gets another star. Otherwise, this was an extremely odd duck of a film wherein the Lady for the Day disappears for what felt like half the film. Very strange and incredibly weak dialogue from Riskin.
