High Time (1960): Starring Bing Crosby and Tuesday Weld

In High Time, Bing Crosby, toward the end of his screen career, plays a widower who goes back to college, only to realize the effects of generation gap.

The young members of school include Tuesday Weld, Fabian, and Richard Beymer, all rising stars at the time.

This formulaic comedy is directed by Blake Edwards, who would embark on an illustrious career after this predictable fare.
