A small-town plumber (Guy Kibbee) became a wealthy─and extremely stingy─man when he got into the bathroom fixture-manufacturing business. But he gets a much-needed wake-up call when his long-suffering wife (Aline MacMahon) throws his penny-pinching ways back in his face, just when Kibbee is trying to impress a new client, in the comedy "Big Hearted Herbert." With Patricia Ellis, Helen Lowell. Then, MacMahon stars in "The Merry Frinks" as the loving matriarch of an eccentric family who is willed $500,000 by a long-lost relative (Kibbee). All she has to do to collect is leave her odd-ball clan. Hugh Herbert, Allen Jenkins co-star in this wacky comedy. 128 min. total. Standard; Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital mono.
