Synopsis


By the Light of the Silvery Moon
By the Light of the Silvery Moon was a sequel to Warner Bros' On Moonlight Bay (1951); both films were loosely based on the "Penrod" stories by Booth Tarkington. Penrod himself (played by Billy Gray) takes a back seat to the main plot, concerning the hot-and-cold romance between Doris Day and Gordon MacRae. Gordon will not marry Doris until he is financially able to do so, which results in several breakups and reunions before the final clinch at the local ice rink. A silly subplot involves Penrod's suspicions that an attractive French schoolteacher (Maria Palmer) is not only romancing his father (Leon Ames), but is also an enemy spy! Set shortly after the end of World War I, Silvery Moon takes full advantage of that era's popular songs. The film isn't quite as good as On Moonlight Bay, but fans of Day and MacRae went home happy. Also: watch closely, and you'll spot Merv Griffin in a minor role. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

    Great Memories

    I watched this movie for the first time with my grandma when I was a little girl. I have been waiting for it to come out on DVD so I could have it to watch and think of those great memories. I hope my kids will enjoy it as much as I did when I was little. I remember the cute story that is great for even kids to watch. I also remember all the great music in the movie. I'm thinking of getting the CD. I think this is a great family movie that especially those that love musicals will enjoy for years to come!
