name of 1950's movie about a man with two families?

I think black and white. Maybe a comedy-can't quite remember.

    The Remarkable Mr. Pennypacker (1959)

    starring Clifton Webb, Dorothy McGuire, Charles Coburn, Jill St. John, Ron Ely, David Nelson (son of Ozzie and Harriet and brother of teen idol Ricky Nelson), Richard Deacon

    IMDb synopsis:

    In early 1900s Pennsylvania, Mr. Pennypacker has two company offices and two families with a combined total of 17 children. With an office in Harrisburg and an office in Philadelphia, he has successfully kept two separate homes. However, when an emergency requires his oldest son to find him, Mr. Pennypacker's dual life is revealed.

    I remember seeing this at the theater when I was about 8 years old. For some reason, that loooong title always remained in my mind. I didn't need to verify before I wrote it. By the way, I am a devoted Clifton Webb fan and have never been disappointed by any of his films.
