John Jones (Jed Prouty) attends an American Legion convention in Hollywood and the whole family, minus the married daughter, goes with him. A minor movie actor, Danny Regan (William Tracy) picks up Lucy Jones (June Carlson) and gets her a screen test, which proves disastrous. The family takes a studio tour and they create havoc by stumbling onto movie sets and disturbing filming. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

User Reviews

There were 17 Jones Family films, not just one.
28 October 2005 | by yessdancSee all my reviews

The 'reviewer' above states that The Jones Family in Hollywood was the only 'entry' in the Jones Family saga. Not so-not even close. According to the IMDb, there were 17 Jones Family films, and all were made in the span of 3 or 4 years, which is astounding! Jed Prouty always played the Dad, and though I haven't seen more than a couple of these fun but silly films, I believe that most of the films starred the same cast. Wish more were available on the rental market!

I recently met Sid Kibrick, who not only played the youngest son in the Jones sagas, he was WOIM, Butch's sidekick in fourteen episodes of the Our Gang shorts.
