Very funny
21 August 2000 | by IcehandsSee all my reviews

The recollection of this film is from the 60's tv. There were several enjoyable characters, including Andy Devine. The most memorable part is a bit done between Bea Lillie, customer and Franklin Pangborn, store salesman. The difficulty of purchasing a doudle dozen damask dinner napkins is hilarious. If anyone out there has a copy of this film, I would love to see it again.
