Plot Summary
Sweet-natured Alice Sycamore (Jean Arthur) falls for banker's son Tony Kirby (James Stewart).

Hinds) -- might be too eccentric for the staid Kirbys.

    In the tradition of Frank Capra...this is a heartfelt story about a family who doesn\'t realize how precious life is until they meet up with their son\'s fiance\'s family. A wacky group that could care less about money or the conventional way of life. The journey is funny as well as heartwarming. A must see for fans of Frank Capra.
