"Goodbye, My Fancy" (1951) is a Warner Bros. feature film starring Joan Crawford and Robert Young in a light tale about a woman and her old flame. The screenplay by Ivan Goff was based upon a 1948 play by Kay Fanin. The film was directed by Vincent Sherman and produced by Henry Blanke. "Goodbye, My Fancy" was the third and last cinematic collaboration between Sherman and Crawford.

Plot and cast

U.S. Representative Agatha Reed (Joan Crawford) returns to her alma mater to receive an honorary degree. Reed was expelled from the school years earlier for participating in an all-night date with young professor, Dr. James Merrill (Robert Young), now the university president. The romantic fires are rekindled when the two meet. Matt Cole (Frank Lovejoy), a photographer who loves Reed, believes her feeling for Merrill is simply an unresolved hold-over from her girlhood and follows her to the school. A subplot involves Reed embroiled in a university matter over progressive teaching methods with Dr. Pitt (Morgan Farley), trustee Claude Griswold (Howard St. John) and his wife Ellen Griswold (Lurene Tuttle). After a series of misunderstandings, Reed realizes she belongs with Cole and should put away her romantic fancies of Merrill. Other players in the film include Eve Arden, Janice Rule, and Ellen Corby.

Reception

"Variety" commented, "Performances are very slick, under Vincent Sherman's direction. Miss Crawford...sustains the romantic, middle-aged congresswoman with a light touch that is excellent," while Bosley Crowther in the "New York Times" generally panned the film, writing, "Miss Crawford's errant congresswoman is as aloof and imposing as the capital dome." [Quirk, Lawrence J.. "The Films of Joan Crawford". The Citadel Press, 1968.] .
