Tim Conway's license plate used to be "13 WEEKS" because that was the length of time his TV series used to last. This movie probably didn't last 13 days in the theaters. Conway (whose real name is Tom; he had to change it when he joined the Screen Actors Guild so he wouldn't be confused

with Tom Conway, George Sanders' brother, who played in THE FALCON) is a bumbler who learns that he is the only remaining relative of the fabulously wealthy Choo Choo Trayne (Geer, in his last performance)--to give you an idea of the film's intelligence level. He has to duplicate the hobohemian

life of his aged relative in order to glean the money. The rest of the story is as predictable as the sun rising in the East. Conway is getting to be more and more of a caricature of himself. The refreshing character he brought to TV on "McHale's Navy" has never matured, and he seems doomed to

doing the same thing again and again. A sad state for a man who had enormous potential. You can take a child to this, provided the child isn't too discerning. Anyone over age six you'll find nodding off.
