A gentle story of orphans uprooted by war-torn China
This is a heartwarming story that begins with the upheavals of war in China and how young lives find a new life in America. The lovely Deanna Durbin is protector of eight orphans and such is her dedication that she falls in with sailor Barry Fitzgerald's little scheme of pretending to be the widow of the elderly Commodore Holliday, with the resultant confusion, hilarious moments and bittersweet outcomes. Ms Durbin sings some fine old favorites and I particularly liked "Mighty Like a Rose" which she sings beautifully. It has light romance, comedy, and tender moments and is well recommended as excellent family fare.
