New York's Grand Central Station is full of children going away to summer camp. Among those present are widower Van Heflin (as Brad Stubbs) with his two girls, and widow Patricia Neal (as Jean Bowen) with her two boys. The previously unacquainted adults meet at the station while sending their twosomes away from home for the first time. You should have no trouble figuring out the basic storyline. The girls are real-life sisters Gigi Perreau (as Anne Stubbs) and Janine Perreau (as Patty Stubbs). The boys are Jimmy Hunt (as Garrett "Gary" Bowen) and Tommy Rettig (as David "Shorty" Bowen)...

During the "father-son" athletic competition, young Hunt sustained an injury and "little brother" Rettig found his role expanded. In some scenes, Hunt can be seen with his left arm held still or concealed...

This sort of story reached its madcap peak with "Yours, Mine and Ours" (1968). The adult romance is unexciting, but there is fun watching their rivals. Television star Virginia Field (as Phyllis Reynolds) also wants to wed Mr. Heflin, and muscular camp counselor Richard Denning (as Don Adams) desires Ms. Neal. As the co-stars hired "help", Frances E. Williams and Elvia Allman are amusing. Heflin and the children benefit particularly well from Douglas Sirk's capable direction. Playing a ten-year-old with nail polish and a toothy boyfriend, Gary Pagett (as Eddie), young Gigi is especially enchanting.
