It's the 1920s and aging millionaire Coburn wants to leave his fortune to the family of a woman who once turned down his proposal of marriage. To see if they are worthy, he rents a room from them and pretends to be an eccentric artist, then anonymously gives them $100,000 to see what
happens. Bari, the mother, decides that the family should move into a mansion and she sets about trying to marry daughter Laurie off to a rich young snob instead of poor but loving soda jerk Hudson. Once everybody has learned a lesson, Coburn determines it is all right to leave them the rest of
his fortune. Charming, well-done period comedy. Dean makes his film debut and Sirk works wit...
