Trivia

The audience for this movie was so small that when the song "A World That Never Was" was nominated for an Academy Award, song writers Paul Francis Webster and Sammy Fain hired publicist Michael B. Druxman to set up an 800-number so that Academy voters could call in and hear Fain's demo recording of the song. See more »

Obscure, third class light comedy
21 January 1999 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

HALF A HOUSE is an obscure, third class light comedy with only a few fairly funny situations. This absolutely inconspicuous movie is interesting neither for trash fans nor the average moviegoer. Anthony Eisley proves in this tired sitcom again, showing talent for comedy, that he is a much better actor than his filmography might suggest.
