| A sweet & delightful little comedy!
This lighthearted comedy seems to have fallen through some crack and been nearly lost. It's hard to know why as it's just delightful. Mr. Erwin is perfect as the naive little man who is absorbed with useless facts, statistics and figures. His life is at his desk memorizing ever more useless information until the day he wins a bean counting contest and the $1,500 prize changes his life forever. He decides to strike out and see the world.

When he lands in a small town and winds up buying a run down barrel factory his adventures are just beginning. He finds not only challenges, success and excitement but romance as well. This is a charming story, filled with laughs that your whole family will enjoy again and again. You will be very glad to have re-discovered a fine film!
