"Never take life seriously,” says Grandpa Vanderhof in this delightful Frank Capra film. “No one's lived through it yet." Grandpa Vanderhof,  a very convincing man, has talked a banker into becoming a toymaker. The Vanderhof household includes a daughter who writes unpublished plays, a son-in-law experimenting with firecrackers in the basement, and a granddaughter who is an aspiring ballerina and whose husband is a virtuoso – on the xylophone. Add a suitor hoping to marry Vanderhof’s relatively sane granddaughter, his stuffy and wealthy parents, and you have a funny and satisfying clash of cultures.
