Love with the Proper Stranger

"Weak"

Love with the Proper Stranger Review


Quaint, old-fashioned, and overwrought, this minor classic from the early 1960s features McQueen as a pick-up musician and Wood as a still-living-at-home goodie-goodie who come together after a one-night stand, when Wood discovers she is pregnant with his baby. Managing to be both pro-abortion and pro-family values, Love with the Proper Stranger is hardly the highlight of either star's career, but it is a cute diversion.

Wood received an Oscar nod for her role. Also of note is Tom Bosley's screen debut.
