Has Anybody Seen My Gal
Piper Laurie ■ Rock Hudson ■ Charles Coburn
Wealthy Samuel Fulton is getting older and has no family of his own. He decides to leave his estate to the family of his first love, who turned down his marriage proposal years ago because he was poor. But he wants to test the family before leaving his money to them. He takes a room in their home and a job in the father's shop. He anonymously grants them $100,000. Harriet Blaisdell moves the family into a mansion and makes plans to marry her daughter Millicent off to a socialite rather than her soda jerk boyfriend Dan. With the money going to their heads what will happen to the family?
This goofy and funny movie is filled with many lessons for all involved.
I watched this movie with my parents and all 3 of us really enjoyed it.
Full of quirky characters that all learn a little and get a comeuppance or two in the most fun and entertaining story.
This is one of those silly, lighthearted, cream puff kind of movies that are pure escapism. The kind they just don't know how to make anymore.
It's kind of funny that this movie is considered a Rock Hudson movie when he gets so little screen time. Instead of carrying the plot he supports it wonderfully, it's really Charles Coburn (John Smith) that makes this movie.
This is a great movie that I wouldn't hesitate to watch with the entire family. This a is a great 50's movie!
