The Tender Trap is a 1955 comedy directed by Charles Walters. In his mid-30s, New Yorker Charlie Y. Reader (Frank Sinatra) has never married, and yet he never lacks for women. The charismatic bachelor attracts plenty of beauties who are willing to help him out in the romance department, including Poppy (Lola Albright) and Helen (Carolyn Jones). Charlie's best friend, Joe (David Wayne), has taken a very different path in life, with a family in Indiana. However, Joe turns up on Charlie's doorstep and confesses his wish for a carefree bachelor lifestyle. Joe starts courting Syliva (Celeste Holm), one of Charlie's female friends who yearns for a domestic life and marital stability. Meanwhile, Charlie runs into a totally new kind of woman: young Julie (Debbie Reynolds), who rejects his charms. She has plans to marry and have children before turning 22 and does not have time for insincere flatterers like Charlie. To his chagrin, Charlie starts to slowly fall for the young woman, even though she does not fit his ideal. It seems that both Joe and Charlie may have to rearrange their life plans.moreless
