Terence Davies on Young at Heart

As part of the BFI's popular Screen Epiphanies programme, the writer/director of such renowned works as The Neon Bible and The House of Mirth introduces a screening of Gordon Douglas' Young At Heart with a loving tribute to the 1954 Doris Day/Frank Sinatra musical romance. Recalling the experience of seeing the movie for the first time, Davies also lovingly pinpoints some of the technical and performance decisions featured in the film to emphasise the deceptively masterful craftsmanship of a work too often dismissed as mere sentimentality.
