A family of con artists accidentally work their best scam ever... on themselves... in this pleasantly fantastic romantic comedy. Starring Janet Gaynor (A Star is Born), Douglas Fairbanks Jr. (Gunga Din) and Paulette Goddard (Modern Times) - The Young in Heart is an irresistible tale that's shot through with laughter. The Carleton family will do anything for money... except work. Taken in by a rich, lonely old lady, George-Anne Carleton (Gaynor), the savvy and cynical baby of the family, hatches the perfect plan: pretending to be decent hardworking people in the hopes that old lady will rewrite her will in their favor! But how long can you play a role before you actually become it? Richard Wallace (The Fallen Sparrow) directed this David O. Selznick (Since You Went Away) production, featuring a strong supporting cast that includes Roland Young (Topper), Billie Burke (The Wizard of Oz) and Richard Carlson (The Maze).
