| Endorsed by Dr. Spanky...and it's one of their best!
Zeffie Tilbury is a very welcome addition to "Second Childhood". She plays a grouchy old lady who is so nasty she can't even enjoy her birthday. But, when Spanky accidentally breaks her vase and offers to help clean up the yard to pay for it, a strange transformation takes place and the once-grouchy lady begins to experience her second childhood.

This is simply a joy to watch. Tilbury is very captivating and the plot is a delight. It's hard to adequately describe it and do justice to it--just see this one and enjoy.

According to IMDb, Miss Tilbury was actually blind but hid it quite well. Naturally, in the stunts they used a stuntman but it's not all that easy to notice and I like the idea of the filmmakers using a disabled woman and making allowances for her.

Oh, and my comment about 'Dr. Spanky'--well see this short and see Spanky dispensing medical advice--yes, medical advice!
