Cheaper By the Dozen (1950)

Housesitting Day One: I got a bunch of 50s movies from Mediawave and I intend to finish this god forsaken decade. I cannot believe I’ve been on the 50s for almost three months.

Tonight’s first film was Cheaper By the Dozen, starring Clifton Webb and Myrna Loy. It’s not quite the happy-go-lucky version we all love with Steve Martin, but rather it’s a little darker. Super spoiler alert – the father dies!

All in all, not great. It might actually be one of those rare situations that I prefer a 2000s version of a movie to its original release. Weird.

One thought on “Cheaper By the Dozen (1950)”

  1. I really liked this movie, I have weird emotions to certain things. I’m a kid, and I watched the kid’s movie bolt, and when he left his toy at one point I got sad, but 12 kids’ father dying didn’t make me sad. Eh. o.O But I haven’t watched the newer 2, so I don’t know how it is compared to the other ones.
