| Getting Old Is Not For Sissies
Dennis Morgan wants his father, Fred Stone, to leave the old soldier's home and come live with him. His wife, Gloria Dickson agrees. Stone, however, is an old coot. He interferes with the cook and the gardener, and brings young Sonny Bupp and Bupp's dog, to give them baths.

It's one of Warner's streamlined B movies from the period, sentimental and a bit trite compared to other movies about the problems of the elderly. Nonetheless, third-billed Stone (even though he is about 90% of the movie) makes it well worth watching. Stone was a legend in the show business, a veteran of circus, burlesque, vaudeville and the legitimate stage. His best-remembered role was as the Scarecrow in the hit Broadway version of THE WIZARD OF OZ. His entertainment family included daughters Dorothy and Paula, and nephew Milburn Stone.

Stone's movie career began in 1915. In the silent era, he appeared in half a dozen films through 1922, then returned to the talkies in ALICE ADAMS for a six-year stretch through 1940. He was plagued with blindness in his last years and died in 1959 at the age of 85.
