Storyline

Having being left a widow when her sons were young, Margaret Patters struggles to bring them up on the limited family finances. When they reach manhood, they cause her much travail because, each in his own way, is selfish and irresponsible; Charley, who can't keep a job because he would rather stay home on practice on his trombone; Eddie, a self-proclaimed sports promoter who has nothing to promote; and Kenneth, a struggling actor whose talents are mostly struggling. They all have to register for the pre-World War II draft, and each has all kinds of new ailments and excuses for not being drafted into the Army. Aunt Lottie has had enough, and she takes charge.

How Not To Treat Your Mother...
5 May 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Women has three (3) adorable Baby-Boys, then becomes a Widow. Her Sister in Law helps her raise them, but they do not get the results expected. Instead they get a triplet of alleged Men, who act like irresponsible spoiled Children. Treating their Mother not with love and respect, but as another housemaid and somebody to put a touch on. Will they grow-up and meet their responsibilities to Mother and Country, watch and find out.

'B' film from Warner Brothers features good cast. Irene Rich (Mother), Marjorie Rambeau (Sister in Law) and Moroni Olsen (Mothers Suitor) with Wayne Morris, William T. Orr and Tom Brown as the loser Sons. They all fulfill what is expected of them and Warner Brothers delivers a fine small film for Family viewing. Not a classic, but illustrates what the studio system did right. Made just before our entry into the BIG ONE (WWII) it is topical for the time. One other cast member, though underused does make a impression, Susan Peters. Who would go on to a successful, if brief career at M.G.M.
