Synopsis

#123movies #fmovies #putlocker #gomovies #solarmovie #soap2day Watch Full Movie Online Free – A happy and unbelievably lucky young Irish immigrant, John Lawless, lands a job as the butler of an unconventional millionaire, Biddle. His daughter, Cordelia Drexel Biddle, tires of the unusual antics of her father–especially since the nice young men around town all fear him. Wouldn’t you fear a father-in-law that keeps alligators for pets and teaches boxing at his daily Bible classes? Cordelia decides to run off to boarding school and promptly finds the man of her dreams. Unfortunately, his family doesn’t approve of Biddle’s outrageous antics, either. A Disney musical punctuated by snappy songs and an energetic debut by Tommy Steele. This is reportedly one of the last live- action films Walt Disney personally oversaw.

”Let’s Have A Drink On It!”
Yes, “The Happiest Millionaire” was Walt Disney’s last film. Yes, it was obviously made to top “Mary Poppins” and yes, like many late-sixties musicals, it flopped at the box office. But the fact remains that it is a glowing, beautifully made musical (with songs by the Sherman Brothers who were responsible for “Poppins”) and it never got the recognition it truly deserved. The cast, headed by Disney Stalwart Fred MacMurray and legendary star Greer Garson (in her last film appearance) is excellent. The musical numbers are fun and engaging and the players do them well. Both Lesley Ann Warren and John Davidson were introduced in this film and proved an ideal pair of romantic leads. Warren, who became an overnight star courtesy of her delightful performance as Cinderella in the 1965 Rodgers and Hammerstein television musical, literally shines as Cordelia Drexel Biddle. Many scenes are stolen by Geraldine Page playing Davidson’s haughty mother, and Tommy Steele can sing and dance with the best of them. There is also a grand performance from Gladys Cooper as the family matriarch. And, for “Poppins” fans, Hermione Baddely appears as the Irish housekeeper. There is also a brief bit by Joan Marshall, the star of William Castle’s “Homicidal” (billed as Jean Arless) as a maid. The fact that this story is (loosely) based on the prominent Biddle family of Philadelphia, adds to the fun. Because the film was released after Disney’s death and exhibitors complained about its long running time, it was drastically edited, shortening and removing several scenes, as well as one musical number (“It Won’t Be Long Till Christmas”), and here is where the controversy comes in. Garson was originally cast as Mrs. Duke, after the part was turned down by several actresses, including Geraldine Page. Just before filming began however, Page changed her mind, and Greer ended up as Mrs. Biddle. (a part she was not anxious to play). She agreed to the switch when she heard the score–especially “It Won’t Be Long Till Christmas” which was her one musical number. Indeed she COULD sing, and she did so in a few of her ’40’s films. Because her song was subsequently cut from the film (after it’s Hollywood world premiere) she declined to attend any further premieres, though she had been at the Hollywood opening. Thanks to the newly restored roadshow edition, the song has been restored, and Garson and MacMurray perform it to perfection, truly the highlight of a warm and wonderful story that makes for perfect holiday viewing.

For true fans of musicals only.
This movie is for true fans of musicals only, numerous songs popping up unexpectedly followed by numerous dance sequences and daydreaming characters. This is one of the final motion pictures Walt Disney produced, a story about a happy Irish immigrant, John Lawless (Tommy Steele), who lands a job as the butler to millionaire Biddle (Fred MacMurray). His daughter, Cordy (Leslie Ann Warren) meanwhile falls in love with Angie (John Davidson), to the dismay of her parents.

While I am sure many people like the romance, music and comedy of this movie, it was too carefree and light-hearted for me. Everybody looked too happy and spirited, like there is not a care in the world, and many of the characters seem to sing their way out of their problems. Tommy Steele’s character, while classic I’m sure, was very annoying and irritatingly cheerful. The pace of this movie’s plot was pretty slow as well – not very suspenseful or intriguing. The saving grace of the movie was Leslie Ann Warren.

Overall, not a very good movie due to the slow plot, overzealous characters and overly-exerted musical numbers. I also wished the overly-cheerful acting was toned down a bit.

Grade D+
