Terrific Frank Capra comedy about a kooky, lower-class family and its impression on a young socialite () who is intending to marry their son ().   and are deliciously droll as the hapless hero’s parents, and Capra ends the endlessly enjoyable moral philosophizing with a feelgood ending to take home with you. This delicious bit of whimsy took the 1938 Academy Award for Best Picture, and deservedly so.
