Classic Films for the Classic Childhood: The Happiest Millionaire

LIFE LESSON: Fortuosity

The Happiest Millionaire: This is one of my favorites, with Fred MacMurray and newbie actress Leslie Ann Warren.

Yes, this is a musical, which means the kids will remember the songs and lessons, whether they want to or not! Key lesson in this film? Fortuosity: that life is always giving you exactly what you need when you need it. And that while family expectations are important, if you got a dream you need to follow it. Humorous antics like alligators in the conservatory, and a  father who fights off the boyfriends with boxing matches add a bit of extra fun.
