One of the very best!
28 October 2002 | by (Oceanside, CA) – See all my reviews

A must see for all those movie lovers of good old time movies that have wonderful family values to portray and done in such a excellent manner. They don't make movies like this anymore which is very sad. An excellent performance by Frank Morgan and all the supporting cast. A young Kathryn Grayson plays a delightful role too. If you like the old time family values portrayed then this is a definite must.
