Quotes

Peter 'Junior' Potter Jr.: I was so young at the time, I don't remember many of the things Daddy said about me. If he poured out his heart in this will, I'd kinda like to read it. "The reason I leave all my money to my son Junior is that, being of sound mind I can't leave my money to my wife, 'cause I ain't never forgiven her since the day she presented me with an idiot for a son." Well, I was the only child. "But this idiot is all I got in the world, which shows you what a lousy spot I'm in."

You can't compete with Trigger on a fight for a blanket.
29 February 2004 | by (S. Paulo, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Frank Tashlin had a great quality: he could satirize his subjects, but at the same time he understood their charm, he kind of loved them. That is why he made some great comedies like "The Girl Can't Help It" (where the subjects where rock and roll and Jayne Mansfield.)and "Artists and Models". "Son of Paleface" is pure fun from beginning to end. Roy Rogers, Trigger, Jane Russel and Bob Hope, that is a great team. Rogers sings a nice version of "Buttons and Bows" and has some good action scenes, also he and Hope make quite a comic duo. Russel is on her prime with a fantastic figure, very well shown on her musical numbers. But the best moments belong to Trigger, first when he gets upset at the way Hope shouted and goes running after him through a house (you wonder how he went up the stairs) and then on perhaps the funniest moment ever on film when he fights with Hope for a blanket.
