I was going to suggest you feature this movie, one of my all time favorites. I saw it on a local TV station on Mother's Day. I think, but unsure, that my family had a small book named Mama's Bank Account. I read that over and over but the book has been lost over time. I'm trying to think of the author and Betty McDonald comes to mind. I am no doubt confused but I keep remembering the name, Dagmar, who of course was the little girl who loved her kitty, Uncle Elizabeth. Spoiler-"cured" by Mama. Thank you for featuring this classic movie. Irene Dunn is one of my very favorite actresses. A lovely, wholesome family story with scenes of San Francisco where I spent a couple of happy years before it's downfall.

This is one of our favorite movies. We have watched it so many times, and it’s one of those movies that we quote occasionally: “We don’t want to have to go to the bank”, and other dialogue. And Uncle Chris! What a lovable curmudgeon!
