To me, this is the greatest Cary Grant film ever! He plays a lonely, ex-teacher/alcholic who gets coaxed into helping the british navy spot Japanese aircraft from a small island. He is supposed to be temporary but things don't go to plan &, while on a neigbouring island, he finds a French woman & the 7 girls that she is caring for. He takes them back to his island where there is shelter & food but things quickly go wrong for him. I won't spoil it by giving you all the details but, needless to say, it's very funny.
It's a great little warm-hearted family film that i'm sure anyone could enjoy.
I have this on a video cassette that my dad bought over 20 years ago &, finally, it's given up the ghost. I can't wait for this d.v.d to come out, i already have it on reserve for the release date.
Oh, by the way, if you enjoy this or films like this you may want to check out Operation Petticoat (availible to buy.) It's another Cary Grant film also starring the excellent Tony Curtis (some like it hot) & it's just as good as father goose.
