Description by OLDIES.com:
THE EGG AND I: Screen legends Claudette Colbert and Fred MacMurray star as newlyweds whose love is put to the test on their wedding day in the classic comedy The Egg and I
. Just after she has said "I do," Betty (Colbert) learns that her new husband, Bob (MacMurray), has left his white-collar job with plans to raise chickens on a rustic farm located miles away from civilization. Betty tries to make the best of her situation in their ramshackle house but never-ending repairs, a malevolent wood-burning stove, rain, ornery livestock and a seductive neighbor (Louise Allbritton) do not make it easy! There is never a dull moment in this heart-warming comedy that also introduced the beloved characters of Ma and Pa Kettle (Marjorie Main and Percy Killbride).
FRANCIS THE TALKING MULE: One of the most beloved family films of all time, Francis the Talking Mule stars Donald O'Connor as a bewildered soldier who befriends an old army mule... who happens to talk! Second Lieutenant Peter Stirling (O'Connor) repeatedly finds himself in a mental hospital after he tries to explain to his unbelieving superior officers that a talking animal rescued him from behind enemy lines. When his four-legged friend appears with plans of heroic action, the U.S. Army faces one of its biggest - and most stubborn - challenges.
