Quotes

Ted Foster: I thought that if you wanted to marry a girl you were supposed to ask her father...
Harry C. Thomas: You must be talking about some other father, some other family. Not a family with only one father and three daughters. Nobody asks him anything. He's lucky if he gets told.

Father (and Mother) Know Best
4 September 2003 | by (Old Forge, Pennsylvania) – See all my reviews

Mr and Mrs Thomas (Frank Morgan and Irene Rich) have three daughters. The youngest, Harriet (Virginia Weidler), is always getting into trouble, snooping around or trying to connive some pistachio ice cream. Her older sister, Evelyn (Gloria De Haven), seems to spend much time in the kitchen. The story focuses on the romance of the oldest girl, Mary (Ann Rutherford), with Ted Foster (John Shelton), who is an automobile salesman at a dealership owned by Mr Hellman (Gene Lockhart). Ted and Mary soon get married and confidently expect a life of undisturbed bliss, since they are so much in love that no quarrel could ever separate them. But when Ted has some quite innocent dealings with Anastasia Atherton, a pretty model, misunderstandings and complications ensue, which require the wise intervention of Mr and Mrs Thomas. A nice little old-fashioned family picture.
