Friday night was my church's Sweetest Day Dinner and a Movie night. There's yummy food and dessert and always an old movie! This year we watched "The Egg and I" (1947), starring Fred MacMurray and Claudette Clobert as husband and wife Betty and Bob and Marjorie Main and Percy Kilbride as Ma and Pa Kettle.
After surviving World War II, Bob comes home to his wife Betty and decides to leave his cushy job in the city for a simple farm life. Betty, who, like me, enjoys her creature comforts, is not terribly excited about the dilapidated state of the farm Bob moves her too. They encounter many ups and downs including a temperamental old stove, a cast of crazy neighbors and a beautiful, rich farm girl who thinks Bob is the man for her. This is the first of many films featuring Ma and Pa Kettle, a kooky rural family with way too many kids.
Betty has some cute outfits in this film.
