Raw-boned, raspy-voiced, sixty-something Letitia "Tish" Carberry (Marjorie Main, who would find her greatest fame in the Ma Kettle film series) comes back to her hometown with a baby in her arms. "I'm a woman. It's a baby. It's mine!" she declares. Three splendid character actresses - Main, Zasu Pitts and Aline MacMahon - play three delightful spinsters in Tish, based on stories by Mary Roberts Rinehart. The old dears try their hands at matchmaking, get everything in a dreadful muddle, and end up caring for an orphaned baby they mistakenly believe is illegitimate. This warm comedy is laced with drama and punctuated with plenty of sight gags, including Main roller-skating in her Sunday best and the three stars tangling with a disgruntled bear on a camping trip.

I must confess, I had never heard of this film nor could I find much about it (it isn't even listed in Marjorie Main's filmography). For the most part, I thoroughly enjoyed watching it and I do plan on keeping it for future viewings. As Marjorie Main is one of my favorite actresses, buying this wasn't a problem. That it also starred Zasu Pitts was a bonus. It's a DVD-R product. The film does show its age with lines, spots, and crackles (as I grew up watching black and white films in poor condition I didn't mind this a bit).
It's unconventional to say the least.
I'm glad I took a chance and bought.
