Lovers and Lollipops is a reverse "generation gap" quickie with a dash of charm to help it go down. Ruth Orkin plays an attractive widow with a headstrong daughter (Lori March). Ruth wants to marry a go-getting businessman, played by Gerald S. O'Loughlin. March won't hear of it, and digs in her heels at the prospect of momma taking the vows. Filmed in New York, Lovers and Lollipops is obvious but amiable stuff; its utter lack of star names doomed it to an early TV berth.
