Storyline

Majestic mountains are in the background and a waterfall in the foreground. Is that a canoe on the river? No it's a cradle with a baby. The buoyant Molly Brown has survived the first crisis of her life -- a flood. Sixteen years later she sets out to make her way in the world. Can she sing and play the piano? She assures the Leadville saloon keeper that she can and learns quickly. Soon she is the bride of Johnny Brown, who in a few years will be able to replace the original cigar wrapper wedding ring with a replica in gold and gemstones. But it takes more than a few million dollars to be accepted by Denver society. The Browns head for Europe and bring a few crowned heads back to Denver for a party that turns into a ballroom brawl. Molly goes to Europe alone, returning on the Titanic. She didn't survive a flood as a baby for the story to end here. Written by Dale O'Connor <daleoc@interaccess.com>

Goofs

The Molly Brown House in Denver is actually quite small. Only one room had a smidgen of red wallpaper (she also thought too much red to be gauche). Her parties were well-attended (although the orchestra played from the balcony outdoors and serenaded the whole neighborhood), and she was accepted by her peers even before the Titanic. The larger house, which she named Avoca, was at the time outside of Denver. Both houses are restored and open to the public. See more »

Quotes

Shamus Tobin: Serve the Lord and a hot breakfast, then you can look for your Irish Catholic man with the roof that don't leak.
Molly Brown: He's going to have to be more than an Irish Catholic.
Shamus Tobin: What more is there?
Molly Brown: Well if he's going to crawl in next to me, he's going to have to be the richest Irish Catholic next to the Pope.

Oh Yeah !!
2 January 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When I go to many websites to register they ask for your favorite movie. THIS IS MINE !! Debbie is fantastic and versatile. She goes from dirty urchin to Diamond studded Matron in this movie. Her performance should be added to the greatest movies in the history of film... The world would be sadder for not having this movie in the archives of film. Debbie if you happen to read this... We love ya !!! Martitia Hunt as the Duchess is funny and gives a little shot to the Royals in Europe. It has always been my feeling that Debbie should have been tapped to play Molly Brown in the 1999 Epic "Titanic". I have always considered Harve Presnell's part as only a secondary role to allow Debbie to play off him.
