Based on characters from "The Carol Burnett Show," this was the film which led to the series "Mama's Family."
Do you have any images for this title?
The brother called Philip was way too normal for the TV series and was rewritten as the rather dim Vinton.
I wan't even with her when she died. That cold blooded nurse just called me up from the hospital and told me like she was announcing the time of day.
There are only three Harper children shown in this movie: Eunice, Philip, and Ellen. Yet, in previous "Family" sketches (the basis of this movie)and in the series "Mama's Family", there are three other sons, Vinton (played by Ken Berry, who plays Philip in this movie), Larry (played by Alan Alda) and Jack (played by Tommy Smothers). Brother Philip was played by Roddy McDowall in at least two of the original "Family" sketches.
