One Sunday Afternoon is a 1948 musical film directed by Raoul Walsh, and starring Dennis Morgan and Janis Paige.[1]

The film is based on James Hagan's play of the same name, which was produced on Broadway in 1933.[2][3] It was the play's third film adaptation. The first, 1933 adaptation starred Gary Cooper. The second was The Strawberry Blonde (1941); it starred James Cagney and Olivia DeHavilland, and was also directed by Walsh. While the plot of the third adaptation is the same as the others, it does have a significant number of changes.



This film is a musical remake of the The Strawberry Blonde (1941), with some updates like an automobile for the first date instead of a horse and carriage. The tunes include "In My Merry Oldsmobile". Dennis Morgan stars in the leading role James Cagney had played in the earlier version, with Don DeFore in the role of the pseudo friend previously played by Jack Carson.
