Norman Taurog’s early 1952 Room for One More, isn’t your normal big family film, and couldn’t be
further afield from the likes of Yours, Mine and Ours, or The Brady Bunch.
It involves adoption, and while it generally handles the subject well, tugging repeatedly at the audience’s heart-strings, it also has a bit of a strident side.
It was one of Cary Grant’s two 1952 releases, and one of only two feature films for Iris Mann, who moved from entertainment to a career in journalism.
That noted, Mr. Grant and Betsy Drake play a wonderful couple, with more to that story, involving the Andrea Doria.
Derived from what appears to be a beautifully struck fine grain master, the result on Blu-ray is a perfect representation of the work of Robert Burks.
The score is by someone named Steiner.
