Double bill of classic films. In 'Young At Heart' (1954), Barney Sloan (Frank Sinatra) is a cynical, down-on-his-luck musician, who reluctantly agrees to help his composer friend Alex Burke (Gig Young) with a new comedy. Barney gains a new perspective on life and love when he meets Alex's irrepressibly perky fiancée, Laurie (Doris Day) - and promptly falls in love with her. The film is a musical remake of the 1938 film 'Four Daughters', with Sinatra offering definitively gloomy renditions of 'Someone to Watch Over Me' and 'One More for My Baby' before Day manages to put a smile on his face. In 'Lover Come Back' (1961), Jerry Webster (Rock Hudson) and Carol Templeton (Doris Day) are advertising rivals who are forever competing for the same accounts. When Jerry steals a client from Carol, she determines to infiltrate his company and find out who his latest, top secret, VIP account owner is and woo him to her side. Little does Carol realise that the mystery scientist responsible for Jerry's new product is none other than Jerry himself.
