Movie Info

Louie Amendola (Jimmy Durante), once a vaudeville performer with his wife and daughter, hasn't been getting any work, and, as Christmas approaches, his family is homeless. They find a room at Frank Dingle's (Frank Orth) house, but don't know how they'll pay the rent. Then the money Frank's been hiding in the ceiling above their apartment lands in the Amendolas' hands when a crafty squirrel heaves it out of its hiding space, causing more complications within the household.

    I liked this a lot! It was clever and the characters are very likeable. It's something I will probably start watching every year!

    Charming is exactly the word for this movie, and cute too. A cute, nice little story about two families one richer and one poorer. It's a really good movie, and I liked it.

    Number 5 The 1950 Film a Christmas Wish aka The Great Rupert. Thought the copy I watched seemed more like a 1930 film because of condition, its still a movie worth watching this time of the year with the great Jimmy Durant in it. About a trained squireel and a family on the down and out, film shows many scenes of olden days which was cool, story line is excellent. As 100 dollar bills come down from heaven into this familys apartment, thanks to the help of the Great Rupert. 3 1/2 stars
