Mr. Blandings Builds His Dream House {1948}

Mr. Blandings Builds His Dream House {1948} with Cary Grant & Myrna Loy. This is one hilarious movie. Plus it has Cary Grant who is as funny as usual.

 The Blandings live New York City in a tiny apartment with their two girls. One day Mr. Blanndings decides that they should move out to the country - Connecticut that is.  They find a old tumble down house that leans and buy it. Thus begins their adventure.  

Here is one of my favorite quotes from the movie.

Jim Blandings: It's a conspiracy, I tell you. The minute you start they put you on the all-American sucker list. You start out to build a home and wind up in the poorhouse. And if it can happen to me, what about the guys who aren't making $15,000 a year? The ones who want a home of their own. It's a conspiracy, I tell you - -against every boy and girl who were ever in love.

I love, love "Mr. Blandings Builds His Dream House." Cary Grant and Myrna Loy are each amazing enough, and when you put them together they're even better. Have you ever seen "The Bachelor and the Bobby-Soxer"? That's also a great one starring the two, along with a teenage Shirley Temple.

No, not yet. But it is on TCM this December and it's on my movies-to-tape list. =) I can't wait to see a movie with a teenage Shirley Temple, I've seen almost all her movies from the 30s and "The Story of Seabiscuit." =)
