CHEAPER BY THE DOZEN (Theatrical Release USA 1950)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.1|5.0 Stars ìììì

Cheaper By The Dozen—
it’s one of the cleanest films on the market with a simple story worth watching at least once. The acting is unbelievably good with Clifton Webb as Frank Bunker Gilbreth. No fault found due to the age of this film’s original production year. It has not lost its entertainment value nor has it lost its touch with how to display and reveal genuine human kindness.
