    ITEM#: 2256700

    It all begins when a darling smart New York City couple, played winningly by Cary Grant and Myrna Loy, decide it's time pack up their two girls and leave their jaded tiny Manhattan dwelling to build a dreamy get away in rural Connecticut. This bright comedy, directed by H.C. Potter and produced by RKO, goes on to explore in detail the harsh realities of keeping their dream alive. Not only are the Blandings besieged with local tradesman who keep upping their rates, but Cary Grant's character, Jim, is under a deadline to come up for a slogan to sell ham for his add agency, and could potentially lose his job. Under stress, he begins to suspect his wife is secretly in love with their friend and lawyer, Bill Cole. Eventually the decision to build a home outlives all logic and ends happily. The script, which is based on a novel by Eric Hodgins, is sly and confident and the performances are fast and light, making this middle-class adventure intrinsically American.

    • My All Time Favorite Movie...
      Verified Purchase

      I'd been looking for this movie in DVD for a while. I had a copy that I recorded off the TV for play on the VCR and wanted to get a more permanent version for the DVD player. This is my favorite movie of all time and so thoroughly enjoy it. It's family safe, fun, and thoroughly entertaining. I highly recommend to everyone who wants a lighthearted evening of family viewing. Besides, I can finally get rid of the VCR!

      Verified Purchase

      It's dated (Mr. Blandings earns $15,000 a year as an advertising executive in Manhattan), but a great film. The acting is suburb. The DVD is a bit overpriced, but I recommend that it be purchased.
