Quickie Movie Review: The Happiest Millionaire

Was chatting with my sister today, and reminded of the Disney movie The Happiest Millionaire. Often forgotten in the Disney archives because it didn't perform as well as Mary Poppins (which came out just the year before), The Happiest Millionaire was the last movie personally overseen by Walt Disney himself.

Although I'd recommend to more casual movie-watchers to skip through most of the stuff featuring the love story between the characters portrayed by John Davidson and Lesley Ann Warren (both in their first theatrical movie roles), there are parts of this movie that are extremely enjoyable. But Fred MacMurray was always fun, and if you only catch the scenes featuring Tommy Steele, it's well worth it.
