Suppose you're an attractive high school girl like Anne and you're not only a member of a large and unique family but your father, Frank Gilbreth, is one of the great pioneers of industrial efficiency. Then suppose he decides to apply his unorthodox methods to you and to the rest of your big family. The results are terribly embarrassing, funny and — extremely effective! To Anne, however, the chief effect seems to be that of making them seem ridiculous to everyone else at school — especially to the boys. Dad puts up a chart for the young people to initial after completing each household task, uses a rung as an imaginary bathtub to demonstrate how to take a really efficient bath and appoints a utilities officer to levy fines on wasters of electricity. While the situations are often uproarious, there's a serious reason behind this patriarch’s methods. Discover the secret Frank is keeping and learn why Cheaper by the Dozen has delighted audiences the world over.
