Lionel Barrymore is Martin Vanderhof, the eccentric patriarch of a clan of frustrated artists who decided 30 years earlier to retire from the rat race and use his fortune to encourage friends and family to pursue vocations that really interest them. At the center of his family is his granddaughter, Jean Arthur, who is carrying on a romance with her boss' son, James Stewart. 'You Can't Take It With You' is the adaptation of the Pullitzer-winner comedy play written by George S. Kaufman and Moss Hart.
