Film Review

This film precedes BEAU JAMES by two years, and can be seen as a kind of warm-up for that Hope biography. As I mentioned in my comment there, Hope was hoping to find a film property that he could demonstrate his dramatic abilities in, so that he could possibly get a nod for an Oscar nomination. So the two biographies and the serious toned THAT CERTAIN FEELING have a certain individuality among Hope’s comedies and films missing in the others. Eddie Foy Sr. was one of the great comics of his era. His career was actually older than that of his friend and rival George M.

This is underrated as both a Bob Hope vehicle and a musical biopic: even if it follows the basic path of all such films (the struggle to achieve success followed by the pitfalls of celebrity, not forgetting the obligatory romance and the equally inevitable tragedy), it's very capably mounted – with the script even garnering an Oscar nomination. The star is in very fine form here, balancing characterization with his traditional banter; Milly Vitale is radiant as his wife who bears him seven children and then dies. Since Foy's only ever known showbiz, he opts to drag them all into his act! Incidentally, one of the kids (Bryan) grew up to be a film-maker himself but was mainly noted as a producer with a penchant for the noir genre! Even so, THE SEVEN LITTLE FOYS is perhaps best-known for a guest appearance by James Cagney, reprising his Oscar-winning role of George M. Cohan from YANKEE DOODLE DANDY (1942) – where, incidentally, Foy was portrayed by his real life son, Ed…
