Description by OLDIES.com:
In order to get Mike Stewart (William Holden) to agree to marriage, socialite Candy Goodwin (Frances Dee) promises to live within his modest means - a condition that her wealthy parents vehemently oppose. But living on a budget proves impossible for Candy, who borrows her family's cook to help with a dinner party, only to find that her new in-laws disapprove of her! When Mike realizes that Candy's spending can't be reigned in, he storms off and Candy's left to figure out if she can manage without Mike. Both comic and sweet, this film depicts the modest lifestyles and innocence of the early 1940s. Newly remastered.
This lighthearted romantic comedy stars William Holden as working stiff Michael Stewart and Frances Dee as wealthy socialite Candace Goodwin. Falling in love with Michael, Candace agrees to marry him on his terms-namely, that they survive on his salary alone. Inevitably, Candace has trouble adjusting to her new lifestyle and yearns for the luxuries lavished upon her by her family. Meanwhile, Michael begins to suspect that Candace has been keeping company with men from her own social set. It takes the combined efforts of the Stewart and Goodwin families to reunite the quarrelsome couple in the final footage. There's nary an original moment in MEET THE STEWARTS, but the two leads are so darned atttractive that it doesn't matter at all.
