You Can't Take it With You
"Grandpa" Martin Vanderhof reigns over a delightful madhouse. On any given day you'll run into his children and grandchildren, their spouses, and folks who came for a visit and never left. All are artists, writers, and inventors, and none of them have let a lack of talent interfere with having a good time. That's fine with Grandpa; he opted out of the rat race of conventionality years ago because it was no fun. Today, he "doesn't believe in income tax" and allows fireworks experiments to go on in the basement. The comedy is over the top in this wacky tribute to nonconformity, but the moral of the story is thought provoking: Find in yourself the courage to do with your life what you really want to do.
