When Dimsdale is standing and talking to his girlfriend in the living room of the house he and the children are hiding in, you can see all the children in the backyard playing. The dining room is also visible and you can see a man in a dark suit sitting at the dining room table. The man is obviously not a part of the movie. See more »
This is a classic -- if predictable -- 60s comedy, complete with smart-aleck kids and Bob Hope's one-liners delivered in his deadpan style. Like the big family in "Yours, Mine and Ours" some of the kids just stand around and we're to blithely accept the fact that middle-class families reproduce like rabbits, but those of us with *only* three or four kids can still identify.
Unlike the Disney movies of the same era, or the Hepburn-Tracy movies of a few years prior, the situations, clothes, and other styles truly reflect middle-class America. Oh, and it's actually funny!
