Penny Serenade Movie Poster

Classic Cinema for Film Aficionados

With our Public Performance Rights access via Kanopy Streaming Videos, Kahuku Public and School Library is happy to present this 1941 classic film:

Penny Serenade

In this classic, heart-wrenching melodrama, Roger Adams (Cary Grant) and Julie (Irene Dunne) are married and deeply in love. Their dreams of starting a family are tragically put on hold when Julie suffers a miscarriage that leaves her unable to carry another child.

Determined not to let this prevent their parenthood, the couple adopts a little girl, Trina. However, when Roger’s newspaper folds, they are forced to convince the court that they are fit to keep her. They succeed in this battle, but tragedy soon strikes again, and Adam and Julie must re-examine themselves – and their love for each other – in order to fight for their marriage.

Nominated for Best Actor in a Leading Role (Cary Grant) at the Academy Awards.

“…Very credible acting on the part of Mr. Grant and Miss Dunne is responsible in the main for the infectious quality of the film. Edgar Buchanan, too, gives an excellent performance as a good-old-Charlie friend, and Beulah Bondi is sensible as an orphanage matron. Heart-warming is the word for both of them. As a matter of fact, the whole picture deliberately cozies up to the heart.” – Bosley Crowther, The New York Times
