Charming family movie
9 September 1999 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was always fascinated by Frank Morgan as a kid and am sorry that so little data is registered for him in the biography section. So many film stars of that era are given so little acclaim when they were truly greats to the film industry. They lived their lives, made their marks in history and we are truly privileged to have the archives of those movies to re-live that era.
