Freddy the Freeloader iIs Alive and Well!
18 March 2020 | by billmallekSee all my reviews

Freddy shares a poor man's Christmas in a warm and engaging story. Vincent Price flexes his tongue in cheek genius as he pals with Freddy as they crash high society with hilarious results. We get a scene with Imogene Coca as a bonus too!
