A young man falls in love with a girl from a rich family. His unorthodox plan to go on holiday for the early years of his life is met with skepticism by everyone except for his fiancée's eccentric sister and long-suffering brother.
Letty, a young woman who ended up pregnant, unmarried and on the streets at fifteen is bitter and determined that her child will not grow up to be taken advantage of. Letty teaches her child to lie, steal, cheat and anything else he'll need to be street smart. We meet Letty when Mickey is 7-1/2. Mal enters the picture when his truck and Mickey, who is hanging on to the back of a delivery truck and being pulled along the streets on his roller skates, collide. Mickey is not injured badly, but when Letty discovers that Mal is rich, she concocts a scheme to take Mal to the cleaners. When her plot is uncovered, Letty is also discovered for the unfit parent that she is, and Mickey is taken away from her. Mal and his wife Alice, unable to have children of their own, take Mickey in and give him a father's love, a true mother's love, and a home he can call his own. Letty is jealous of Mickey's growing attachment to these two good people and she still sees Mal as a ticket to riches. Letty ... Written by
Breathtakingly beautiful is the young Loretta Young in this movie--short movie, that is, which gives us life in the thirties with a look at fashion, language and life. It is a fair movie but pleasant to see because of the era in which it was made is so apparent in it. Cary Grant is young and vibrant and charming, isn't he always? As said, Loretta seems to own many lovely and glamorous clothes for a woman who is down on her luck, but well, it is a movie. Did I say she looks beautiful. She is a selfish woman who devises a plot to win her son back but comes to realize what really matters in the end is not her own good, but the well being of her child. A very short movie, too short, and ends abruptly, but I did enjoy seeing it. Stars today are not as beautiful as once was Loretta Young.
