Flashback Friday: Tammy and the Bachelor (1957)

Love can be a strange thing. We may think we know who we want to spend our lives with. Then the right person walks through the door and everything we think we know goes out the door.

In the classic 1957 film Tammy and the Bachelor, Tammy ( the late Debbie Reynolds) is a girl from the country with a big heart, but little experience in the world. After she saves Peter Brent (the late Leslie Nielsen) from a plane crash, Tammy’s grandfather is sent to jail. With no one to care for her, she is sent to live with Peter’s family. Though she is akin to a fish out of water, her time with the Brents changes them. Tammy also falls in love with Peter, but he has a fiancé.

I think from the 2021 perspective, this particular movie may seem a little quaint and old fashioned. Yes, it is entertaining, but it is also very fitting for the late 1950’s.

Do I recommend it? Maybe.
