Without this film anyone having a classic movie collection just thinks they have a classic movie collection. It is a fine old movie with lots of good, old-fashioned humor in it.
Most of all, it has three of the top child actors preceeding World War II. All three of these came together just one time to do a movie. And, do a movie they did. See Freddie Bartholomew, Mickey Rooney, and Jackie Cooper star together as, once again, good triumphs over evil.
