Belles On Their Toes (aka:)

-- Synopsis: 1952 sequel to Walter Lang's comedy Cheaper by the Dozen. After her husbands death in Cheaper, Belle Gilbreth (Myrna Loy) focuses on the family's slow recovery and aspirations for a future. Lillian's qualifications as an engineer are dismissed ... sometimes humiliatingly ... by sexist men. Her eldest daughter starts dating and the other Gilbreth kids weed out unsuitable suitors for their dating-age sisters. As sequels go, BOTT is pleasant and enjoyable family entertainment.

* Several pleasant musical numbers punctuate the comically unpredictable action, including a few by Hoagy Carmichael. Some Shag dancing takes place.
