Our rating:

The Young In Heart is great fun as a family of con artists (Roland Young, Billie Burke, Douglas Fairbanks Jr, and Janet Gaynor) set their sights on elderly Dupree's fortune. She turns the tables and gives all four a lesson in life and the value of hard work.

Janet Gaynor, an Oscar-winning actress best known during the silent era, retired from filmmaking after the release of The Young in Heart. She would appear in just one more film--1957's Bernadine, starring Pat Boone in his feature film debut.
