Dad for a Day

Directed by Edward L. Cahn
1939    11m
Comedy, Family, Romance,
Mr. Henry owns a service station next to young Mrs. Baker's lunch counter. He is too shy to get the words out and tell Widow Baker that he loves her and her young son. The day of the town's annual fathers and sons picnic arrives. The Our Gang ask Mr. Henry to take Mickey Baker along since the boy's father is dead. The picnic goes well and Mr. Henry gets the courage to ask Mrs. Baker for her hand in marriage, and she happily accepts.
