You Can't Take It with You (TV Movie)
Jean Stapleton and Art Carney head an all-star cast in this Emmy®-winning adaption of Moss Hart and George S. Kaufman’s Pulitzer Prize-winning play.
When it comes to eccentric behavior, the Sycamores wrote the book. Grandpa (Art Carney) doesn’t believe in paying taxes, daughter Penny (Jean Stapleton) writes terrible plays, son-in-law Paul (Eugene Roche) makes fireworks in the basement, granddaughter Essie (Beth Howland) is a talentless dancer and her husband Ed (Paul Sand) prints anything that pops in his head.
So when “normal” granddaughter Alice (Blythe Danner) invites her prospective in-laws to what she plans to be a well-behaved introductory dinner, her fiancé (Barry Bostwick) brings them a day too soon and the real fun’s about to begin.
Originally broadcast on CBS-TV on May 16, 1979, and rarely seen since, You Can’t Take It With You also features Kenneth Mars, Harry Morgan, Marla Gibbs and more as the Sycamores’ zany circle of friends.
