The Happy Time (1952) DVD-R

Be the first to review this product

Quick Overview

Starring Charles Boyer, Louis Jourdan, Marsha Hunt, Bobby Driscoll,

Linda Christian

Directed by Richard Fleischer



Print: black/white

Runtime: 94 min.

Genre: comedy

Print Quality: B



The Happy Time was adapted from the long-running Broadway play by

Samuel Taylor, which in turn was based on the novel by Robert Fontaine.

Set in Quebec during the early part of the 20th century, the film

concentrates on the activities of a large French-Canadian family headed

by Charles Boyer. Most of the humor arises from "coming of age"

complications and sexual awakenings, especially when worldly prodigal

son Louis Jourdan returns to the fold and exercises his influence on

impressionable young Bobby Driscoll. Not permitted to include the racier

portions of the play, director Richard Fleischer compensated by adopting

a frenetic, farcelike pace, which works about half the time. Happy Time

was later musicalized on Broadway in the 1960s, with Robert Goulet in the

Louis Jourdan part.
