The Facts of Life (1960)

Bob Hope as "Larry Gilbert"

The Gilberts, Larry (Bob Hope) and Mary (Ruth Hussey), and the Weavers, Jack (Don DeFore) and Kitty (Lucille Ball), are neighbors and close friends -- even though Larry and Kitty always grate on each other's nerves.

The two must now contemplate whether starting over is worth it at middle age.
