In honor of today being Mother's Day, today's feature stars Republican actor and great Disney and TV dad Fred MacMurray as a pediatrician who marries glamorous actress Marlene Dietrich so she can adopt a foundling baby. Standard Hollywood studio fluff of the 1940s but pleasant and appropriate for the holiday.
Dietrich certainly was willing, that's fur sure.
True. Haha. Dietrich certainly was a cinematic legend although I can’t help but think of Madeline Kahn’s brilliant parody of her in “Blazing Saddles” whenever I see her.

Marlene Dietrich, 1948. She wears a wonderful mink cape
strewn with rose petals made especially for her in
Paris; said to have cost $40,000.

Why no play “ I remember Mama,” instead of this dog.
Fred MacMurray never starred in anything but dogs.

It’s a matter of opinion.

The Apartment is one of my favorite films. Paul Douglas was signed to play the Sheldrake role but was replaced by MacMurray after his untimely death.
