Houseboat is a 1958 romantic comedy about a Washington, D.C., attorney named Tom Winters (Cary Grant) who is given custody of his three children after the untimely death of his estranged wife. After realizing that he is unable to cram his expanded brood into his D.C. bachelor apartment, Tom enlists his former sister-in-law (Martha Hyer) to find a more appropriate dwelling in the country. When these plans go awry, Tom is forced to move his clan into a rundown houseboat. Complicating matters further, his children insist he hire an Italian woman named Cinzia (Sophia Loren) as their housekeeper. Unable to speak English, and incompetent at cooking or cleaning, Cinzia is actually the daughter of a famous conductor (Eduardo Ciannelli) who is touring the United States. Cinzia may not be an ideal housekeeper, but Tom learns that she knows a thing or two about raising children. The script for Houseboat, by Melville Shavelson and Jack Rose, was nominated for an Academy Award.moreless
