YOURS, MINE AND OURS (Theatrical Release USA 1968)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.2|5.0 Starsìììì

Yours, Mine and Ours
—as good as or better than the remake—pairs Lucille Ball with Henry Fonda to create an outstanding piece of family entertainment that has not lost its value over the years. The storyline is well received by Ben Meyers International as a story that uplifts and builds family values. It is a celebration and a valuation of life. Great work for Director Melville Shavelson.
