"Penny Serenade" (1941)

Sometimes a film can push so far into pathos the schmaltz turns gold. Witness this ultimate sudser with Irene Dunne and Cary Grant (one of his best performances)...the stars make this hokey thing work because we root for them as a couple; they meet cute, fall in love, then find themselves childless...and turn to a troubled odyssey with Beulah Bondi's odd orphanage. Throw logic out the window...and get your hankies ready.
