Almost like "Kramer Versus Kramer" decades and decades earlier.
17 February 2013 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Robert Lenhart (Paul Lukas) is a publisher who is having hard times with his business. His 'loving wife' decides that she doesn't want to be shackled to a poor man and a child, so she leaves and marries a millionaire. Surprisingly, Lenhart's business turns around and he and the boy make a good life for themselves. However, the wife's new mother-in-law (May Robson) likes the boy and decides she MUST have the child--so the mother and step-father return and try to take custody of the boy. What happens next? See the film.

This film is an unusual tear-jerker because it's an awful lot like "Kramer Versus Kramer"--but almost 50 years earlier. While the final courtroom scene is a bit contrived, it is also heartfelt and satisfying. Overall, a nice old film that I enjoyed from start to finish. Better than I expected.
