A Most Enjoyable May Robson Film!
12 July 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

May Robson was a truly fine actress. I really like this film and I highly recommend it. It doesn't matter to me if it seems to be "Capra-esque" or seem to try to be like a Damon Runyan story. I prefer to focus on this film as if I hadn't seen "Lady For a Day" or her first film, "Mother's Millions". I do enjoy it when May Robson is the star of the film as she is in this one. She is first cantankerous but one need only to look at her family to see why she is lonely. Films are still made that borrow from previous successful films. What made this fresh for me are the boys who are bound for troubled life until they meet May Robson whom they call "Queenie" and even the "Old Battle-Ax". Frankie Darro gives an excellent performance and is a real asset to the film. The gangster connection adds a fresh and believable aspect to this film. Yes, there are aspects to the story that are rather hard to believe, but the characters portrayed by May Robson and the children make this film charming. It does get sentimental but it is still a very enjoyable film. May Robson was a joy on screen, much like Alison Skipworth and the great Marie Dressler. I am glad to have this film and, despite any flaws, it has action, comedy and it is heart-warming.
