This movie was on every Christmas Eve in Chicago and my family never missed it! I am so disappointed that it is never shown anymore. It had a great cast - Billie Burke as the hopelessly scatterbrained mother, Eugene Palette as the hen pecked father, a really funny, useless, sponger brother in law and 3 spoiled kids. A terrific story - this group has gone through their own substantial fortune and are now trying to chisel their way into an inheritance. I guess it is because it wasn't from a major studio that it was not preserved, but it should have been. Luckily, I was able to buy a copy on VHS a few years ago from Movies Unlimited,but I noticed today that they no longer carry. A shame!
