The Happiest Millionaire (1967) Rated G

A young Irish immigrant lands a job at an eccentric billionaire’s home where the father keeps alligators for pets, and the daughter tries to find the man of her dreams who isn’t afraid of her father. Starring Fred MacMurray, Greer Garson, and Gladys Cooper.

This film has brilliant actors, but it just doesn’t have the energy that the other Disney films have. The story is a little on the crazy side, and the father of the Biddle family is a bit on the eccentric side. I enjoyed that the father teaches Bible studies; although, those could be misconstrued with the way he teaches them. The music is entertaining as having been written by the infamous Sherman brothers. There are some missteps, with too many scenes with alligators or an actor breaking the fourth wall. This is one film I would love to have loved, but I didn’t. It’s not worth a watch.
