Sunday Salon: Watching Yours, Mine, and Ours

Yours, Mine, and Ours is a fun movie. One that I've enjoyed for many years now.  It is the story of what happens when Helen North,  a widow with eight children, falls in love with Frank Beardsley, a widower with ten children. The movie is definitely a comedy. It stars Lucille Ball, Henry Fonda, and Van Johnson. The movie, at first, treats their relationship as ridiculous, an insane impossibility. But the two can't deny that they are in fact in love with each other, so they decide to marry. And so their lives become interesting...

The movie has some wonderfully memorable lines. And there are some great scenes in this one! Including the grocery-store scene.

As a purely fictional movie, it works really well. If you are looking to classify it as a based-on-a-true-story movie, it doesn't work that well. For all the drama and comedy have been added in to entertain viewers.
