Charming, feel-good early comedy
28 August 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In this episodic comedy, a cash-strapped older Englishwoman (Alison Skipworth) hitchhikes from New York to California to pay a surprise visit to her son. She mistakenly believes that San Quentin, the return address on his letters, is his orange ranch.

Along the way she shares misadventures with various new friends: a young woman, a trailer salesman, and a pair of wanted criminals.

It's not an all-time classic, but I loved spending an hour or so with these characters. The film has a solid cast, and even James Ellison (who I usually think of as a B-movie cowboy) acquits himself well here in a romantic-comedy role.

I saw the 77-minute theatrical version (rather than the 53-minute TV print) and found the pacing and storytelling just right.
