Room for One More (1952) is a comedy-drama film starring Cary Grant and directed by Norman Taurog. The movie became the basis for a short-lived television series with a different cast, Room for One More, in 1962.


Anna (Betsy Drake) visits an orphanage and decides to foster a child. Jane, a very unhappy 13-year-old, moves in with her, her engineer husband, "Poppy" Rose (Cary Grant), and her three children. Later, 12-year-old orphan Jimmy-John, who has a physical disability, also moves in with them. Despite some setbacks, the children overcome their earlier difficulties and become full members of the family.
