Father's Doing Fine DVD Cover

Based on Noel Langley's play Little Lambs Eat Ivy (a title inspired by Milton Drake's 1943 novelty hit), Father's Doing Fine hilariously charts the adventures of an impoverished upper-class family consisting of a widowed mother and her four daughters. The love affairs of the two unmarried daughters, some worthless shares, a thieving butler, the unpaid rent, the matrimonial difficulties of a third daughter and the imminent motherhood of the eldest are just some of the things that have to be dealt with over the course of a single day!

Featuring Richard Attenborough as a frantic father-to-be and Heather Thatcher as straitened matriarch Lady Buckering, this good-natured domestic comedy is presented here in a brand-new transfer from the original film elements, in its as-exhibited theatrical aspect ratio.
