Product Description

Centennial Summer (1946)

Director:

Otto Preminger

Writers:

Albert E. Idell (novel), Michael Kanin

Stars:

Jeanne Crain, Linda Darnell, Cornel Wilde
 
Otto Preminger directed this romantic musical (something of a change of pace for the rather serious-minded director) set in Philadephia in 1876. The upcoming Centennial Exposition is the talk of the town, and sisters Julia (Jeanne Crain) and Edith (Linda Darnell) find themselves romantic rivals when they both fall for Philippe (Cornel Wilde), a suave Frenchman in town for the celebration. Their mother Harriet (Dorothy Gish) might offer more advice if she weren't busy looking after her husband Jesse (Walter Brennan), who is busy tinkering with inventions that he's convinced will make him a rich man. Jerome Kern composed the film's'score and co-wrote several songs, including "Up with the Lark," "The Right Romance," and "All Through the Day." It was the last film work he would complete prior to his death in 1945.

  2. Good musical 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Jan 14th 2017

    I was excited to find the DVD for Centennial Summer. I saw this movie while on a vacation as a teenager and have always wanted to see it again. All I ever found was the music from the movie. Glad an email was sent about it after I checked on it this fall.


  3. A GREAT FIND 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Jan 7th 2017

    This film was, supposedly, Fox's answer to / parallel to MGM's MEET ME IN ST. LOUIS. Whether or not that is true, here is another fine Jerome Kern score; his last - a great find!
