The Tunnel of Love (1958) B/W - Movie Review


The "Tunnel of Love" is such great fun. This sly romantic comedy was directed by Gene Kelly and stars Doris Day and Richard Widmark.

I know it seems unlikely that Richard Widmark would be in a movie like this but here he is in this 1958, black and white innuendo filled comedy about a suburban couple who can't get pregnant no matter what they do. You have to feel sorry for poor Richard Widmark when he comes home hot, tired and out of sorts from traveling to Connecticut from New York. All he wants to do is get out of his hot sticky clothes, curl up on the sofa and sleep. But Doris Day has other ideas, her temporature just right so they have to make love NOW, then rush off immediately to the doctor's office, per the good doc's intructions. The hook is that Doris and her husband start proceedings to adopt a baby. A female inspector comes to talk to the couple, through a mishap Widmark wakes up in the inspectors bed. Did he or didn't he??

To make matters worse the inspector suddenly has to go away and returns 12 months later? Out of the blue the agency has found a baby for the couple, the baby looks like Widmark, the next door husband and best friend of Widmark thinks it's Widmark's baby and Widmark thinks it's his baby. And Doris is really suspicious. The next door husband played by Gig Young is a world class philanderer who never gets caught is loaded with lots of advice (all bad) for frazzled Widmark.

This movie must have been soooo risque in 1958 and it's still so now. The surburbia shown here is so cliched that it's down right laughable. Doris sings the title song "Tunnel of Love." Definately a great way to spend a rainy Saturday night with a big bag of popcorn.
