Personal Quote:

I made Happy Mother's Day because I was broke, but when I saw what was happening to this family, I got really interested. The Saturday Evening Post editor loved it, but the publisher-producer did not like it. So, it got changed into this film about how nice it is to have quintuplets, and it was sponsored by a baby-food company. See more »
