Storyline

For her birthday Ritchie Connors gives his wife Nora a coat from the store where he works. His workday gloom is made even worse when their friend from next-door shows up that evening in a mink. To try and make things right Nora goes out and buys four live mink to raise. But the attempt at grow-your-own-coat is none too popular with husband or neighbours.

A determined woman works for herself!
21 April 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie is NOT about a husband raising minks to make his wife a coat.

The female lead, Nora Connors, plunges into breeding minks to make her own coat. Because of her husband's employment problems and her determined business mind, the family's life changes direction.

It is a very funny movie and although I abhor the notion of a fur coat and actually am vegetarian, I love the fact that no one seems to question Nora's capabilities because she is a woman, and this was 1953!

Another plus is the chance to see "Uncle Charlie" and "Mrs. Cleaver" outside of their later sit-com environments.
