Trivia

When the television show, The Brady Bunch (1969) was in the beginning phases of production, the makers of "Yours, Mine and Ours" threatened to sue claiming that the concept was too similar to their own. The threat was withdrawn, however, when Brady Bunch producer Sherwood Schwartz countered the action with documentation that his original script was shown to have a copyright date before that of the movie. The final evidence that halted any legal proceedings was the fact that the original Brady Bunch title, according to the original draft of Schwartz's script, was "Yours and Mine." See more »

Goofs

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 »

Helen Beardsley
11 May 2004 | by (orange county) – See all my reviews

I worked with Helen Beardsley at a hospital in Fresno, CA in the early 80's. She was a nice woman with a take-charge attitude. (I think you have to have one when you are the mother of 19 children.) She used to live in an ocean-view house in the Carmel area, but then sold it to move to Fresno. We always kidded her about doing that; she said the weather was better inland. I think that she was proud of her book and movie. She sold the rights to her movie early on, before it achieved sort of cult-favorite status. She told me that she regretted doing that. I did not know that she died until I read it on this comment page. I was sorry to read that; she wasn't that old and she was a strong woman.
