Movie Info

Planning a motor vacation to California, Charlie Ruggles and Mary Boland advertise for a couple to help drive and share expenses. That couple turns out to be George Burns and Gracie Allen, accompanied by Allen's surly great dane. Ruggles is driven to near-insanity by Allen's intrusiveness and stupidity.

Funny, definitely dated, comedy headed by George and Gracie.

April 27, 2007

Though only in a cameo, Fields steals the pic.

Audience Reviews for Six of a Kind


The comedy in this movie isn't very funny, and some of the scenes are way too long, which makes it worse. Burns and Allen are pretty funny for most of the movie, but they get pushed aside by Fields.
