Quotes

Rodney Barnes: Well it's idle money and that's waste money because money makes money and the money that that money makes makes more money!
Grandma Allen: Hah! Say, that's a dilly. But I heard a better one at the track; a skunk sat on a stump, the skunk thunk the stump stunk and the stump thunk the skunk stunk! How's that?

Fun, energetic, cute but not very clever
1 May 2001 | by Sleepy-17See all my reviews

Fast-paced family comedy similar to what Disney produced in the 50's and 60's. Very likeable cast includes Eddy Arnold, Jane Darwell, Alan Hale. Son of a mattress factory owner buys his own factory and gets involved with gangsters (Anthony Quinn and Frank Faylen!). If you don't like feisty, wise-cracking grandma's (Jane Darwell hams it up), skip it; otherwise, quite enjoyable.
