Trotter pollster Pete Marshall is trying to find a missing coworker. In a rural town he stumbles onto the roughian Fleagle family. Bert and Mert would just as soon "splatter" snoopers with their rifles. However, Ma Johnson focuses the family energies on finding cousin Bonnie Fleagle's $70,000 bank job stash, somewhere around the large old rickety house. Claire Matthews, the daughter of a man implicated in Bonnie's bank job, also comes in search of the money to try and clear her father's name. Marshall and Matthews team up to try and decode Grandma Fleagle's strange deathbed clue but with Mr. Johnson attempting to poison people and Bonnie Fleagle showing up herself after a prison escape, it's anybody's guess as to who will find the money first.

MacMurray and Walker share an on screen romance, but they never actually kiss each other. In some close ups of MacMurray's left hand, you will notice that he is wearing his wedding ring during the course of the film. See more »
Most everyone who has seen this movie agrees that it is VERY funny...one of Fred McMurray's best, and Marjorie Main is really a HOOT. For those who DON'T want to pay an exorbitant price, there is a DVD available from BLOWOUTVIDEO for $14.95 plus $4.95 S&H. I just got one so it is a legit offer. And I received it within a week from ordering. Don't expect HiDef quality; this is probably even a pirated, bootleg copy since the disc has no label although the jewel case has the same poster image as the studio issued copies (and it is sent from Las Vegas)! But if you just like the movie for it's goofy antics, this is probably a good bargain.
