"MR. HOBBS TAKES A VACATION" JAMES STEWART, MAUREEN O'HARA FRIDAY 9:00 A.M. EASTERN FOX MOVIE CHANNE

optimistavacaciones.jpg

 

FLASH ALERT:

 

9:00 a.m. Eastern, Friday, Fox Movie Channel--  "Mr. Hobbs Takes a Vacation"   James Stewart, Maureen O'Hara, Reginald Gardner, John McGiver, Lauri Peters, John Saxon, Fabian

 

Odd time of airing, but perhaps just what's needed.  Light-hearted, rather silly, zany comedy, in which Jimmy Stewart is perfect as usual, as a put-upon father and husband on a seaside vacation.  Early 60's nostalgia.  Funny bird-watching sequence with the inimitable John McGiver worth the price of admission....

OOPS! I missed it. But I liked looking at the picture you included. It made me think - Maureen O'Hara was "married" to many men during her film career. And she looked like she genuinely liked each one. But what's not to like about Jimmy Stewart.

One of my childhood faves. It has been airing a lot on FXM in the past few weeks, check their schedule.

Bit of trivia, Lauri Peters who played the teen daughter was the original Liesl in Sound of Music on Broadway. She was married to Jon Voight for a short time.

This is a wonderful movie, loved some of the scenes especially when Stewart called the boy that asked his daughter to dance a pygmie.  That was funny.

Sorry I missed this, but have seen it many times.  The first time, I laughed a lot....it was just perfect.

 

In subsequent viewings, it was just enjoyable to watch for the silly story.

 

It hasn't been on in a long time that I could remember.

One of my favorites! Heart
