Some of the dates presented in this trivia information are incorrect. Helen's husband Richard North and Frank's wife Frances Beardsley died in 1960, so no one could have wanted to make the movie before that time. Helen did not appear on To Tell the Truth before the marriage in 1961, though she did appear on the game show. The book Who Gets the Drumstick was published in 1965. See more »
As Frank and Helen are checking out their groceries at the commissary, the checked items are shown several times, and although the clerk appears to be moving them toward the person boxing the groceries, the items shown are the same in each shot. Also, any family with 18 children would buy milk in gallons, not in quarts (they purchase about 20 quarts). See more »
I have always just loved this movie! I saw it as a teenager in the 60's, getting ready to go off to college and thought it was great fun at that time. Since I was a teenager, I remember really enjoying the character of Mike, played by Tim Matheson. I always thought he would go on to be a real big movie star instead of TV movies, since he had lots of charisma and maturity at that young age. However, he has done very well in the roles on television he has played and is always a real treat to watch. I don't think I thought Lucille Ball was too old the first time I saw it, because anyone over 25 seemed old to me at the time! I recently caught this movie on TV and enjoyed it again from an adult perspective. It was a little corny but still a good film. Life in the sixties even with Vietnam and all was a much more innocent time especially with what kids face today. I would give it a 100 just because it is so uplifting.
