|Screen legend Myrna Loy returns as Lillian Gilbreth, an industrial engineer and now widowed mother of twelve rambunctious children. It's a hilarious but sometimes heartbreaking adventure as Lillian struggles to keep the family together, even as she pursues a career against all odds in the early part of the century. Your family will love the good clean fun of this heartwarming and nostalgic comedy gem!|
Editor's NoteThe Gilbreth family is back in this sequel to 1950's CHEAPER BY THE DOZEN, picking up where the original left off with the death of the patriarch Frank Gilbreth (Clifton Webb). Myrna Loy reprises her role as the sturdy Lillian Gilbreth, mother of twelve children; faced with supporting her brood by herself, she puts her engineering qualifications to use, albeit with some sexist misgivings on the part of her employers. Eventually she wins out, however, and in the meantime her daughters are growing up, creating a whole new slew of comic situations. A memorable performance is delivered by Jeanne Crain as the about-to-be-wed Ann, while some hilarious misadventure ensues when the younger Gilbreth kids decide to take charge of their older siblings' dating prospects!
