Movie Info

Based on the autobiography by George and Anna Rose, Room for One More is a warm-hearted vehicle for husband-and-wife actors Cary Grant and Betsy Drake. Though she already has three children of her own, New Jersey housewife Anna Rose (Drake) adopts several kids born into less fortunate circumstances. Both Anna and her husband "Poppy" (Grant) must contend with the emotional baggage brought to their home by these "unwanted" kids, and both bear up quite well. The film's dramatic core concerns the Roses' efforts to reach a desperately unhappy 13-year-old girl (Iris Mann) and a physically handicapped boy with a penchant for getting into serious trouble (Clifford Tatum Jr). Despite occasional moments of anguish and pathos, Room for One More for the most part opts for a light-hearted approach to its subject matter. In 1962, a TV sitcom version of Room for One More, starring Andrew Duggan and Peggy McCay, debuted as a mid-season replacement over the ABC network; at that time, the original film was re-titled The Easy Way. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

    Lesser known Grant comedy is a sweet-natured look at the challenges of adopting older children and blending them into an already existing family. A nice film rather than a laugh out loud comedy.

    This is a decent movie. Basic plot is a all American family from the early 50's with three children end up adopting two orphan teenagers. These kids may seem at first trouble but this family brings the best out of them and vice versa. This is one of two films that stars Cary Grant and his wife at the time Besty Drake. They of course both give great performances. Plus the kids in this are funny and do a solid job in their roles. The story is funny and a feel good film at the same time. A good film for a family to watch together or for those who are big time Cary Grant fans. Well worth a watch.
