(Known in the UK as "A Genius in the Family")
This movie (based on the book "A Genius in the Family" by Hiram Percy Maxim) is significant mainly as it marks the beginning of Universal's best known location - Colonial Street.
The house sets featured in the film were built on Stage 12, then after filming (around April 1950) the sets were moved to the north edge of the backlot, where they remained until they were moved to the current Colonial Street (Wisteria Lane) in 1981.
