"Cheaper By the Dozen", based on the real-life story of the Gilbreth family, follows them from Providence, Rhode Island, to Montclair, New Jersey, and details the amusing anecdotes found in large families. Frank Gilbreth, Sr., was a pioneer in the field of motion study, and often used his family as guinea pigs (with amusing and sometimes embarrassing results). He resisted popular culture,railing against his daughters' desires for bobbed hair and comsmetics. Written by

In the movie, the last child born is a boy named "Robert". But in real life, the last Gilbreth child was a girl named "Jane". There was a son named Robert, but he was the second-to-last child born. See more »

If you want a treat, watch this movie. Watch it with your kids, despite the movie being made 50 years ago I bet they enjoy it. It is truly Clifton Webb ( as Mr. Gilbreth ) at his best. A shame he never won an Academy Award despite three nominations in his career. You can't help but enjoy the High School dance scenes. Edgar Buchanan's brief scenes as the family physician are also a treat. It's 85 minutes you won't regret spending.
