THE BACHELOR AND THE BOBBY-SOXER
June 25, 2013  | By David Bianculli

TCM, 8:00 p.m. ET

 
TCM’s theme tonight is “Schoolgirl crushes,” and it begins with this 1947 comedy, featuring a schoolgirl who was even more famous as a preschool girl. Cary Grant stars as a playboy whose style is cramped when a “bobby-soxer” (think of the sweet young things who swooned in the front rows and Frank Sinatra concerts) develops a crush on him. And the bobby-soxer in question is played by Shirley Temple, who was one of cinema’s biggest stars when she was little more than a toddler.
