Movie Info

Overworked parents Tacey (Maureen O'Hara) and Harry King (Robert Young) have three rambunctious sons and no time for themselves. So they place an ad for a live-in nanny, which is answered by one Lynn Belvedere, who they assume is a woman. The Kings are soon shocked when they discover that Lynn is actually a man (Clifton Webb). Reluctantly, they hire him anyway and are pleased when he proves a success. Unfortunately, the addition of another adult man to the house troubles the neighbors.

Audience Reviews for Sitting Pretty

  • Dec 02, 2019
    A bit of a novelty for Hollywood in that a gay main character (Clifton Webb) heads the action. His thrust (as it were) is infiltration of late 40's suburban America. His entry card: children like him (?!?). He is defiantly imperious and snide, and yet the film tries to get us to believe that people put up with him and his "genius", and more, actually like him. His main antagonist? The only other obviously gay person in town, whom he himself detests. People seem to enjoy this work. I was dumbfounded.

    The original Mr. Belvedere tale has much more charm than the obnoxious TV series that starred its title character. Clifton Webb is a wonderful eccentric in the film and his interactions with the kids are priceless.

    Utterly delightful bit of nonsense with Clifton Webb giving a gem of a performance that utilizes his abilities perfectly.
