Dish Upon a Star

Countdown to Matrimony: Wedding Movie #10

Posted on: December 27, 2010

Here Comes the Groom: This classic flick, starring Bing Crosby and Jane Wyman, features a do-gooder man who treats his long-distance girlfriend like dogcrap. Suddenly, he wants to marry her so that he can adopt two French orphans. Don’t you heart him? Bing and Jane are wildly charismatic, as are most of the characters. No cardboard stereotypes here. A marriage ensues and Jane doesn’t seem at all nervous, even with two potential grooms. Bing breaks into song now and then as he is wont to do. Ah, remember Jane Wyman as the feisty matriarch in Falcon Crest? She was quite remarkable though I remember her as Ronald Reagan’s first wife (I wasn’t alive when they were married…or was I?). At the time, she was a huge star and him not so much. Maybe he was intimidated by her presence. I would be! She’s awesome.
