One Sunday afternoon in the park, aspiring dentist Biff Grimes (Gary Cooper) meets a beauty (Fay Wray), falls heart over head in unrequited love, and - despite eventually marrying a pretty, steadfast girl - never stops wondering what might have been. Years later, Biff gets the chance to find out when he meets his would-be sweetheart again. Displaying the same all-American appeal that mark his memorable performances in such classics as Mr. Deeds Goes to Town and Sergeant York, Cooper makes James Hagan's hit play into endearing screen entertainment. Hollywood knew it had a good thing, remaking the film in 1941 as The Strawberry Blonde with James Cagney and as a musical in 1948 with Dennis Morgan.

While utilizing the same skeletal story as remake 'The Strawberry Blonde' (an excellent 1941 adaptation of James Hagan's play with Jimmy Cagney in the lead), 'One Sunday Afternoon' (1933) is a decidedly different-- though not entirely inferior-- film than its better-known successor. Even with its substantially shorter running time, and hence its economized scenario, there is a depth to the earlier version-- due in large part to young Gary Cooper's moodier, arguably less sympathetic portrayal of Biff Grimes-- that is supplanted by musical interludes, colorful exposition and a lighter, thoroughly magnetic performance by Cagney in the later. So as long as you go into OSA aware that it's more a drama than a comedy (Cooper does manage to charm a few laughs out of the part), it delivers a worthwhile hour and ten minutes. 3 1/2 stars.
Cooper was always good no matter what he did, PAC
I bought this for my husband because he had seen it on TV but wanted me to see it. He loves Gary Cooper and so do I. I guess I would say it is quirky! Anything with Gary Cooper is good in my book.
