The longest-running non-musical play in Broadway history, "Life With Father" was brought to joyous comedic life on film in 1947. Based on Clarence Day's writings about his own family, Life With Father stars screen legends William Powell and Irene Dunne as Clarence and Vinnie Day. Clarence is the headstrong yet loving family patriarch, while Vinnie is his "dizzy" wife, whose real genius is letting her husband believe it is really he who is running the family. Filled with warmth and humor, the film follows the family's adventures in 1880's New York City. Look for a young Elizabeth Taylor in an important supporting role as one of the Day son's romantic interests. Life With Father was one of the top grossing films of the year and received Academy Award nominations in the Cinematography, Musical Scoring and Art Direction categories. A further nomination went to William Powell, who was cited by the New York Film Critics as the year's "Best Actor."

This DVD is of such poor quality that it is practically unwatchable!Published 7 days ago by Jeff Washmon
This is not of my favorite movies, but it seemed all of the DVDs had washed out color or mushy sound. Playing on my Kindle HDX the color and sound were very good. Read morePublished 10 days ago by James W. Lacy Jr.
