Storyline

Hannah is so tight with her money that she takes her son, Donnie, to the charity ward a week after he hurts his leg. But she has always hoarded her money since her late husband wasted most of it and now she plans to save it for Donnie. But when Donnie graduates from Princeton, he does not want to go into banking at Hannah's bank, he wants to be a writer, which upsets Hannah. But the greatest blow of all comes when Donnie meets the daughter of the man who jilted Hannah 30 years before. Written by Tony Fontana <tony.fontana@spacebbs.com>

Heartwarming with excellent acting.
15 September 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie over 40 years ago and could never remember the title. I was fascinated by Ms Robson's acting. I finally went to Turner Classic Movies and wrote a short summary of what I remembered. Needless to say they were showing the movie the following week. I had several friends watch it with me. We all loved it. My cousin, who was in pain with Cancer, watched and forgot her terrible pain for the whole movie. That is the magnitude this film had. My other friends that watched the film, either hated black and white films or hated old movies before the 1960's. They both sat still and watched the entire film, without taking a restroom break.
