Heartfelt Story-telling Holds Interest Throughout
19 February 2002 | by (Forestville, Ca) – See all my reviews

The direction of John Farrow (Mia's dad) and strong performances by Kay Francis and Dickie Moore (as a mother-son team) make this an above-average family picture. Kay Francis shines as an optimistic, if impractical, single mother whose step-children turn against her when they find the family "fortune" is spent. Kay's natural child, played with winning charm by Dickie Moore, is the only one who sticks by her with loving support and a winning smile as he refers to her as "Sweetheart". The rumors and supposed scandals are quenched by the films end, but it's the incidentals that make the picture -- it has many fine moments.
