The original play, "Life With Father" is the longest-running Broadway non-musical play ever. It played on Broadway for nearly eight years (3224 performances), from 1939 to 1947 and held the record for 25 years until "Fiddler on the Roof" surpassed it. In the play, author Howard Lindsay played Father, Dorothy Stickney was Vinnie and Teresa Wright was Mary. The film version was released in 1947, the year that the Broadway run ended. The original Broadway production is the sixteenth longest running show ever as of February, 2013. See more »

Although 'William Powell' is listed first and Irene Dunne is listed second in the viewed print on AMC, half of the actual prints listed Dunne first and Powell second. Not only did each version alternate daily in theaters, but so did the advertisements of the movie in newspapers. See more »
Life With Father is one of my favorite movies. How could you possibly go wrong with two legends of the Silver Screen, William Powell and Irene Dunn, and the wonderful ZaSu Pitts! I love everything about this movie...the time period of the early 1900's New York, the sets and costumes, the interweaving story lines, the acting, the charm and sweetness...I wish this movie could have had a sequel...William Powell and Irene Dunn are absolutely brilliant in this movie. Thank you Clarence Day, Jr. for sharing this wonderful story...
