Movie Info

In addition to his supporting-player duties at MGM, Frank Morgan could always be counted upon to star in the studio's B-picture product. In Keeping Company, Morgan plays real estate broker Harry C. Thomas, blessed (or saddled) with three growing daughters. Mary (Ann Rutherford), oldest of the Thomas girls, leaves the nest to marry handsome Ted Foster (John Shelton). Thanks to the well-meaning parental interference of Thomas and his wife (Irene Rich), the young couple ends up on the verge of divorce. Leave it to tomboyish kid sister Harriet (Virginia Weidler) to patch things up by fadeout time. Intended as the first entry in a series that never materialized, Keeping Company was based on a story by Herman J. Mankiewicz, who obviously didn't take this assignment as seriously as he did Citizen Kane.
