Clifton Webb stars in this lighthearted comedy as a patriarch who has more children than he can count on both hands. Along with his loving wife, played with dry humor by Myrna Loy, Frank Gilbreth must contend with the problems of five fathers. This includes a mass tonsillectomy and the eldest daughter's adolescent crises; her lack of a date to the school dance is solved skillfully by Dad, who takes her himself! Based on the true story of Frank and Lillian Gibreth's child rearing adventures as they were depicted in the book written by two of their children, CHEAPER BY THE DOZEN is directed with a refreshing post-war optimism by Walter Lang. Though the huge family must be run with a workmanlike, though comic, efficiency, it is Dad's charm and love for his offspring keeps the family together.

  • All-time favorite!

    This has always been one of my all-time favorites! I remember the first time I saw it as a child. I am so glad that I can get it for my grandkids to enjoy--as their mother has enjoyed it before them. It is SO VERY MUCH better than the modern version: It is based upon the actual lives of a wonderful family. The father was a famous engineer, and the mother (after the time covered in this story) went on to be an important female engineer--having designed efficient kitchens and more. There is a "second chapter" movie called, "Bells on Her Toes." I wish it was for sale here, too!

    Our family loves this movie. We also got the "With Belles on their Toes", which is the sequel. Both are exceptional.
