I want to echo the comments by the May 21 commenter: the performance by Mann is a good reason to see this film. The ending is too pat, and the performances by the children not very good (including Robert Montgomery's, imho) but Mann makes the whole thing worthwhile. He was already in his '60s when this film was made and he died the next year. So I can see why he has no subsequent career, but I'd like to know more about his earlier life.
