Mr. Blandings Builds His Dream House [1948]

Director: H.C. Potter, Tex Avery
Stars: Cary Grant, Myrna Loy, Frank Graham, Don Messick, Melvyn Douglas
Genre: Comedy, Romance
Rating: NR (Not Rated)
Runtime: 94 minutes

Cary Grant stars as an advertising executive who dreams of getting out of the city and building a perfect home in the country, only to find the transition fraught with problems. (See the 1980s Tom Hanks comedy The Money Pit for an updated version of the same idea.) The big appeal here are the two leads, Grant and Myrna Loy, who were each in their early 40s and at the peak of their careers. Together with solid support from Melvyn Douglas and a screenplay that might have been tailor-made for their polished brand of comedy, the stars dominate this simple project. --Tom Keogh
