Confidentially Connie is a 1953 film directed by Edward Buzzell. It stars Van Johnson and Janet Leigh. Maine housewife Connie Bedloe is pregnant, but the family's limited income from her husband Joe's teaching job means that they can't buy meat. When the father-in-law Opie, a Texas cattle rancher, comes to visit and finds out that the family is not eating meat, he convinces the butcher to sell him a giant steak, halving the price. At a party, the guests find out that the butcher sold it to Opie at half price, and so they all head to the butcher shop, causing a price war. In the end, it comes time for the family to decide whether to stay in Maine or return to Texas.
