Disney+ decided today to once again bless us with a vintage title. Since these additions have been few and far between since the service’s initial launch we must take a moment to savor it. Fred Murray stars in this wacky comedy, The Happiest Millionaire, which first released in 1967.
Synopsis: Clever yet hapless new butler John Lawless manages a Philadelphia household for quirky and joyful millionaire Anthony Drexel Biddle, his unflappable wife, Cordelia, and their spitfire daughter, Cordy.
Enjoy the short preview below on YouTube. There does not appear to be a trailer.
