With no one to leave his considerable fortune to, Samuel Fulton (Charles Coburn) wonders if the family of the girl he loved and lost long ago is worthy. Boarding in their house under an alias, he arranges for a sizeable bequest "from a mysterious benefactor," but will Fulton be pleased with the nouveau-riche airs they put on? Charming farce co-stars Rock Hudson, Piper Laurie, Lynn Bari, Gigi Perreau (look for James Dean at the soda fountain); Douglas Sirk directs. 88 min. Standard; Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital mono.
