Sensible girl marries in wacky family
25 April 2012 | by (southwest US) – See all my reviews

Still the same ol' story... the fight for love and glory.

Girl marries into family, not realizing what a bunch of nutjobs they all are... tries to come up with a solution.... but gets in deeper & deeper. Some great personalities in this ... Nigel Bruce (was Dr. Watson in all those Sherlock Holmes films), Jessie Ralph (the nagging wife to W.C. Fields), Aubrey Smith (was the stately old uncle in Every film in the 30s and 40s). George Offerman plays "Finch", one of the brothers, but might as well be George Awful-man.. with that bad acting.

Story of how the family with all the brothers, sisters, and family members deal with all the ups and downs. It's pretty entertaining, but every scene is very spelled out for us, more than it needs to be. It would have been more interesting if a little more was left to the viewer imagination. Directed by John Cromwell, who married the star of this film Kay Johnson in 1928, a couple years prior to filming this project. He had been blacklisted in the McCarthy hearings of HUAC.
