| Funny movie is possibly the best in the series
The now-forgotten Jones Family series made by Twentieth Century-Fox had one more entry than MGM's Andy Hardy series. The series focuses on a small-town druggist (Jed Prouty) -- who eventually becomes mayor -- and his family, consisting of his wife, mother, three boys (including girl-happy Jack) and two daughters, one of whom gets married and has a baby. I've seen all but two of the films in the series and this is the funniest by far, and not just because comedienne Joan Davis is in the cast. There are many amusing lines and situations, and dyspeptic Granny is a riot. Spring Byington takes center stage -- literally -- when she decides to become an actress because Mayor Jones, her husband, is neglecting his store and family.
