This 1973 home movie captures a birthday celebration for one of the Courtney daughters in Vidor. After blowing out the candles on her cake, the birthday girl plays with her toys and goofs off with her sisters for the camera. Later, the four sisters team up to gang up on their father, climbing on top of him before tumbling to the ground.
