What a marvelous movie "The More the Merrier" was ... and is ... I watch it now and then just to get the lift it always gives me. Charles Coburn was never more fun, and the other stars were exactly right. I can't imagine anybody doing the rhunba better than Joel McCrea and Jean Arthur. I was so glad Coburn got the award.

My dad, a WWII vet, had a "short snorter," but his didn't have all the bills autographed. Also, he said that the name was a contraction of "shorts in order." That is because the bank notes of various countries were taped together in the order in which he was in those countries. I saw his a couple of times when I was a kid.

The same for John Howard. And I doubt we ever saw that much of Joel McCrea again.


Today was a great one for beloved character actors. It was the day Lincoln died, the Titanic sunk and tax day so you know there had to be something to shout about. Hollywood came through.

Well I hope he said sorry for how he treated her!


Hey, very cute picture. Do you know if the same actors were used for the flying monkeys and the munckins? (since their height looks similar).
