Description
Golden-Globe nominated and Emmy Award-winning Tony Randall ("Pillow Talk," TV's "The Odd Couple") plays Lorenzo Charlton, a stuffy tax investigator sent to the farm of Pop Larkin (Paul Douglas) and Ma Larkin (Una Merkel) to find out why they haven't been paying taxes. He discovers that the Larkins, instead of money, use a homegrown barter system. Overwhelmed by their complex economic network, Lorenzo drinks one home brew too many. Awakening from a hangover, he sees a vision of loveliness before him -- the Larkin's spunky daughter Mariette (Debbie Reynolds). Enraptured by Mariette, he decides to stick around and find a way to get the family out of their onerous tax burden. George Marshall ("How the West Was Won," "Destry Rides Again") directs this breezy romantic comedy.

      Comments about this product:

      An angry neighbor sets the IRS after Paul Douglas for borrowing his boar. Tony Randall shows up as the tax auditor. He meets a charming family, especially their daughter, Debbie Reynolds. But, their record keeping is a nightmare. They barter everything, no cash is exchanged.

      Somehow, Paul gets Tony "drunk as a skunk" and he wakes up in Debbie's bed! His boss is telephoning for progress reports. Finally, the boss shows up thinking he has found the worst tax evader in history. He demands that Tony return to the office.

      I forgot to mention the barn tussle scene. What a romp. You can't help but laugh. Actually, every scene dealing with this big family is funny.

      Now, Debbie goes after Tony demanding that he pay attention to her about a Civil War Union Note for the purchase of horses, upsetting Washington, DC.

      Please watch the conclusion. You will cheer and again laugh. I guarantee it.

            NEVER judge a movie by what
            ANY critic tells you............
            I have my own preferences and IF
            the STORY is a good one and I
            like it , it's eventually mine.
