Trivia

Helen and Frank met a little differently than in the movie. In her book, "Who Gets The Drumstick?"after Helen moved to San Francisco, she wanted to honor her dead husband's wishes by enrolling her children in parochial school. She finally found a school run by a nun, Mother Superior Sister Mary Eleanor. As she was enrolling her children in the school, Helen told Sister Mary that she was a widow with eight children. Sister Mary then confided to Helen that she has a brother with ten children who recently lost his wife to complications from diabetes. Helen asked Sister for Frank Beardsley's address and she sent Frank a copy of a prayer that she clipped out which gave comfort on dealing with a loss of a spouse. Encouraged by her brother and sister, Helen went on a batch of unsuccessful blind dates. When a friend's husband died, Helen wanted to send her a copy of the prayer that she sent Frank. She wrote to Frank asking for a copy of the prayer. Frank sent it back and a correspondence immediately began between Helen and Frank which finally led to another blind date. This time sparks flew between them. See more »

When Lucille is holding baby in the hospital, it is wrapped in a blue blanket. She clearly asks the nurse "Could you hold HIM up to the window so they could see HIM? The baby is a BOY. However, in the closing scene when the oldest son leaves, the Baby is clearly wrapped in pink which in 1968 meant a girl. See more »

Love This Movie!!
14 September 2003 | by See all my reviews

I have always just loved this movie! I saw it as a teenager in the 60's, getting ready to go off to college and thought it was great fun at that time. Since I was a teenager, I remember really enjoying the character of Mike, played by Tim Matheson. I always thought he would go on to be a real big movie star instead of TV movies, since he had lots of charisma and maturity at that young age. However, he has done very well in the roles on television he has played and is always a real treat to watch. I don't think I thought Lucille Ball was too old the first time I saw it, because anyone over 25 seemed old to me at the time! I recently caught this movie on TV and enjoyed it again from an adult perspective. It was a little corny but still a good film. Life in the sixties even with Vietnam and all was a much more innocent time especially with what kids face today. I would give it a 100 just because it is so uplifting.
