Quite a few laughs

Percy Kilbride and Marjorie Main are in fine form in "Ma and Pa Kettle on Vacation". They gets a lot of laughs in this movie. Their supporting cast is also on its game. The story is fine and it moves fast. There is no downtime. "Ma and Pa Kettle on Vacation" is a fun movie. Honorable mention: a very dreamy Rita Moreno.
