Sound stage set (1948) stock units were used to construct the Hubbard Home in 1950 on Colonial Street. The "Hubbart house" remained on the colonial street 1950 to 1981 next to the Munster House. In 1981 set moved to the new colonial street where it was placed next to the "Leave it to Beaver House"/ "Marcus Welby House" ("Any town USA" on the Universal Studio Tour. In 1988 it was move again along with the Beaver house to an area of the back-lot south of Falls lake. Some time between (2006 and 2007) it was destroyed. The Hubbard House set has appeared in many Universal Pictures and TV series, example 'The Milkman (1950)', "Bachelor Father' (1960)' and 'Amazing Stories (1985)'. See more »
This is one of the most wicked and dysfunctional families ever to make it to the big screen during the 1940s. Of course, by today's standards they would seem a bit tame! This is the same sick, backstabbing, conniving family seen in little foxes. Some of the original actors are here (such as the slimy Dan Duryea) and some new ones are along for the ride (Edmund O'Brien, Ann Blythe and Frederick March). So why did I like the movie? Well, the evilness of the characters and how deliciously they scheme and change sides when it best suits their needs make it a very mesmerizing film. Also, because the schemes change A LOT, it's tough to predict where the movie will end.
This movie, though made AFTER Little Foxes, is the prequel. So after seeing this, see Little Foxes and hold on tight!
