Cheaper by the Dozen (1950)

The true story of the Gilbreth Family -- a pair of married efficiency experts who raised a family of 12 children -- is brought to the screen with a light touch in this comedy drama, which has been given a simple presentation on DVD. Cheaper by the Dozen has been transferred to disc in the full-frame aspect ratio of 1.33:1. The English-language audio appears in Dolby Digital Mono. Bonus material includes a short vintage newsreel on awards won by the film, as well as its original theatrical trailer. Trailers for the sequel Belles on their Toes and the in-name-only 2003 remake also appear.

When I saw this movie I knew right at the beginning that it would become one of my all-time favorites. It is charming and very funny. I am both tickled and charmed at Frank Bunker Gilbreth, the road hog. This movie is almost like the book that is also very charming.

Old movies-Just don't make 'em like they used to! Great story, even by today's standards.
