Ma & Pa Kettle On The Farm

Now if you are desirous of an afternoon of escaping the modern life, and don't mind black and white movies, you will probably like watching Ma and Pa Kettle raising their family during the post "Great Depression" 1940s.

I have always liked to watch Marjorie Main and Percy Kilbride in their series of Ma and Pa Kettle movies.

Down and out with a huge family, and Pa just wasn't the kind o' guy to work at anything he could get out of. If Pa could get someone else to do something that the needed done, then it got done. Otherwise, the house could fall where it stood, and it appeared it was well on it's way to doing just that.

Meanwhile, Ma Kettle was always working, cooking, washing laundry by hand, hanging laundry, and trying to be sure her kids got an education.

These were black and white films that pretty well depicted life during the depression era. They had more kids than many schools in their area had pupils.

Ma and Pa Kettle movies are a real must see, for anyone who needs a little escape from the hustle and bustle of modern life, and just wants to kick back and have a real nice time with a bowl of pop corn, and a nice big pitcher of homemade lemonade.
