New York adman Jim Blandings is ready to say goodbye to his cramped city apartment and build, from the ground up, a Connecticut home with room enough for his growing family and dreams. All it will cost him is his time and money…and perhaps his job, marriage, happiness and what’s left of his sanity. Goodbye, Manhattan. Hello, comedy. As Jim, Cary Grant is a flustered poster boy for homeowner anxiety in this gleeful laughfest. Myrna Loy, her voice and line phrasing like musical chimes, plays Jim’s ever-patient wife. Louise Beavers is the sunny housemaid whose enthusiasm for Wham Ham saves Jim’s career bacon. And Melvyn Douglas is the perhaps-too-friendly family friend. “Drop in and see us sometime,” Jim says. Invitation accepted!

I'd have difficulty ranking the titles on my wishlist, but I do believe that this one would make the top 5. Very happy to see this.

I can't help but think of George Washington Slept Here anytime I think about Mr. Blandings (And vice versa). I hope there's a chance for that one down the road since it's just as good.

Can't believe I don't have the iTunes streaming version, but I'll certainly being taking the opportunity to acquire this wonderful comedy on Blu-ray. Will also be glad to give away my DVD.
