My first movie as a child.
8 November 2002 | by (Colorado) – See all my reviews

I sure wish I could find a copy of this movie. As a 6 or 7 year old my grandmother took me to see this film, the first movie I had ever seen. We went to the Saturday morning Matinee and I was so enhanced I made her sit through 3 or 4 showings. I'll never forget Joe Penner and his "wana buy a duck?". As I remember now, the movie its self wasn't very good. But I sure loved it!!
