SCSRA/FRPA Special Events
Papa's Delicate Condition
Our next members-only special event will be a screening of Papa's Delicate Condition with Jackie Gleason.
Papa's Delicate Condition, (1963 Technicolor unrated) starring Jackie Gleason, Glynis Johns and Charlie Ruggles.
This is the story, set in the early 1900s, of a warm-hearted railroad official, Jack Griffith (Jackie Gleason), with a profound weakness for John Barleycorn. When he has imbibed too much, his wife Amberlyn (Glynis Johns), euphemistically refers to his state as his "delicate condition." Jack is a devoted husband and father, however, so if Jack's wife doesn't like the color of a neighbor's house, he'll arrange for it to be a house of a different color. If the owner of drug store doesn't believe in selling triple banana splits at his soda fountain for a penny, Jack will buy the establishment. And if Jack's little girl wants the pony in the circus parade, why not buy the entire circus! This last prank sends Amberlyn and the family back to Texarkana where her father (Charlie Ruggles) is running for his third term as mayor. Jack follows, bringing the entire circus.
In this film Jackie Gleason sings the Oscar winning song "Call Me Irresponsible."
The theatre is in the Fullerton Museum Center Auditorium, 301 N. Pomona Ave. (at the corner of Wilshire Ave.)
