Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The 45 Fathers of the title are the elderly members of the Gun and Spear Club, all of whom jointly adopt mischievous orphan girl Judith Frazier (Jane Withers) and her pet monkey. Our heroine wastes no time patching up the various family problems of her new "daddies." Of utmost priority are the travails of Roger Farragut (Thomas Beck), the nephew of old codger Bunny Carrothers (Richard Carle). With Judith's help, Roger is able to straighten out his romantic difficulties with Judith's big sister Elizabeth (Louise Henry). Featured in the cast of 45 Fathers is the popular Broadway song-and-dance team of Paul and Grace Hartman, who perform a ventriloquist routine with the multitalented Jane Withers (Hartman would later play "fixit man" Emmett on TV's The Andy Griffith Show).
