A Movie For Tax Day: The Mating Game
Posted on April 15, 2012 at 3:55 pm
A romantic comedy about an audit from the IRS? Yes, it’s “The Mating Game,” with Tony Randall as the straight-laced, pencil-sharpening auditor who thinks he understands the value of things until he meets up with a genial farmer who does everything on the barter system and his free-spirited daughter (Debbie Reynolds), who likes to roll around in the hayloft. If this sounds familiar and you are a PBS fan it is because it is an American version of The Darling Buds of May by H.E. Bates later adapted for British television starring Catherine Zeta-Jones.
