Description
New York adman Jim Blandings is ready to say goodbye to his cramped city apartment and build from the ground up a Connecticut home with room enough for his growing family and dreams. All it will cost him is his time and money... and perhaps his job, marriage, happiness and what's left of his sanity.

Goodbye, Manhattan. Hello, comedy. As Jim, Cary Grant is a flustered poster boy for homeowner anxiety in this gleeful laughfest. Myrna Loy, her voice and line phrasing like musical chimes, plays Jim's ever patient wife. Louise Beavers is the sunny housemaid whose enthusiasm for Wham Ham saves Jim's career bacon. And Melvyn Douglas is the perhaps too friendly family friend. "Drop in and see us sometime," Jim says. Invitation accepted.

        If you are adding on or building, a view from the past that is very entertaining and funny. Cary Grant and Myna Loy at their best. The modern version of this is "Money Pit" with Tom Hanks and Shelly Long - also funny!

          This is pretty close to what you really go through when you build your our house and you only want to do it once.

            There are good blends of actors and there are marvelous blends and certainly Mr. Blandings is over the top marvelous in terms of chemistry, writing and plot combined with a winning bravura performance equivalent to hitting the trifecta at Aqueduct Raceway.

                Bought this as a gift. This is Cary Grant, Myrna Loy, and Melvin Douglas at their best. It also will be very humorous for anyone who has just bought a house, or is contemplating a house. I also have to give top marks to TCM customer service. When there was a delay in the delivery of the product, they handled it professionally and very promptly.
