This movie is an enjoyable classic. One of the best romantic movies of all time! Cary Grant is masterful in his portrayal of a husband and father. Irene Dunne is also spectacular in her role as the love interest of Cary Grant. I've never seen as moving a scene as when he goes before the judge pleading to keep their adopted little girl after he's lost his job. This movie is not for the faint of heart. More than once will your eyes well with water. The special effects are good for 1941 especially in the earthquake scene while they are living in Tokyo. I never can understand why people like "an affair to remember" so much. This movie is so much better. It's not even in the same league. Definately "Penny Serenade" is one of Cary Grant's best films!

This is a beautiful movie that should be seen by all. It entails the wonderful part of a marriage and the ups and downs that come with it. But in the end, it makes us realize the importance of a loved one.

While Cary Grant excelled in comedic roles (I love a handsome guy that can be funny and make you laugh), I think this role proved what an accomplished all-around actor he is. When an actor does a scene and can make you BELIEVE like he does when he pleads for his little girl, and can make you cry for his grief, that's a GOOD ACTOR PAR EXCELLENCE. I think the only other actors (two in particular) who could do that were Jimmy Stewart (for instance in "Shenandoah") and Tony Perkins (see his role as Jimmy Pearsall--great mad breakdown scene and "Desire Under the Elms").

I purchased this digitally remastered version of Penny Serenade. Although the picture quality of this one was very good(same cover, but mine states it was released by Platinum, 2003), the movie is most definitely cut. Penny Serenade on this DVD did not contain the portion where Cary Grant masterfully pleads to the judge to adopt the child, despite his lack of employment. Grant was nominated for an academy award for that particular performance, which was included in this version. For that very important reason, I reject this one, good picture quality or not.

Cary Grant is one of my favorite actors and I also like Irene Dunne. I really liked their screwball romantic comedies, My Favorite Wife and The Awful Truth but I didn't like their movie Penny Seranade as much. It is a good movie but too melodramatic for my taste. The movie is about a childless couple and their attempts to adopt and it is also about their marriage problems. It's a decent movie, but I guess I'm just not that into weepy soap operish melodramas. This is not a Cary Grant movie I could watch again and again.
