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

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.
