Sitting Pretty (1948)

Clifton Webb as "Lynn Belvedere"

Overworked parents Tacey (Maureen O'Hara) and Harry King (Robert Young) have three rambunctious sons and no time for themselves. So they place an ad for a live-in nanny, which is answered by one Lynn Belvedere, who they assume is a woman. The Kings are soon shocked when they discover that Lynn is actually a man (Clifton Webb). Reluctantly, they hire him anyway and are pleased when he proves a success. Unfortunately, the addition of another adult man to the house troubles the neighbors.
