This was a film I enjoyed from the beginning of this right to the end because of the funny story and the outstanding cast of great actors. Gene Tierney,( Maggie McNulty), "The Left Hand of God" meets John Lund, (Val McNulty), "Steel Town" and marries him immediately and has never even met his mother. Val McNulty's mother is Thelma Ritter, (Ellen McNulty), "Pillow Talk", who has a hamburger stand in Jersey City, New Jersey and is running into problems with her business and has to sell her hamburger stand and decides to pack up and visit her son. Ellen arrives at her daughter-in-law's apartment and gets mistaken as a cook who they are seeking to hire for a big party they are going to arrange. It is from this point in the picture that things start to get rather crazy where two mother-in-laws are living with the newlyweds and not realizing that the cook is Val's mother. This is a great 1951 Classic comedy with two great actresses Gene Tierney and Thelma Ritter. Don't miss this film, it is lots of fun to view.
