Fun, energetic, cute but not very clever
1 May 2001 | by (Colorado) – See 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.
