Seven-year-old Phillippa “Flip” Gayley (Patti Brady) wants a family…her own. So she plots to get her divorced parents, who love her (and secretly each other), back to the altar. Will she succeed? Well, just take a glance at the title. Errol Flynn (spoofing his heroic screen persona in a change-of-pace role) and Eleanor Parker play the parted parents in a warmhearted romantic comedy made merry with a dash of Christmas fun, including Flynn padded out as Santa in a farcical mistaken-identity scene with another Santa.
Other complications include a curvaceous model (Peggy Knudsen) with her eye on Mr. Gayley and a strapping Marine (Forrest Tucker) who thinks Mrs. Gayley is his secret pen pal. Never underestimate the power of a precocious seven-year-old!
