Trivia

Loosely based on the book 'Who Gets the Drumstick?' Similar to The Sound of Music (1965), there were a lot of changes made for the movie whereas in the actual book and real life, the children had a better liking to each other right away. Also, Frank and Helen actually had two children together. See more »

Goofs

When Mike (Tim Matheson) is walking down the sidewalk at the end of the movie in his Marine Corps uniform the tie, shirt and trousers are different shades of khaki, something a Marine would never do and he would be considered being out of uniform. See more »

This classic comedy features Lucille Ball and Henry Fonda reunited. Ball plays a widow with 8 children while Fonda plays a widower with 10 children. The two get married and try to unite the families as one. With 20 different personalities in one home, things get more than a little tough. There is one scene where one of Fonda's children spikes Lucille Ball's drink. She gets drunk and makes a fool of herself, much to the delight of the kids. I love that scene. Her runny makeup and slurring words are just hilarious! This movie has recently been the victim of a terrible remake starring Dennis Quade. If you found that entertaining in any way, you will love the original. It is a wonderful, funny movie that is safe for all ages. Enjoy!
