Storyline

Alpha's been raised along scientific principles, and will make Mike Regan a great human interest story for his paper. But when his interview prompts Alpha to run away from the institute and ask him to show her some magic, Mike gets more responsibility than he bargained for. Especially since another story of his, one involving gangsters, has also come home to roost. Written by Kathy Li

Wonderful Wholesome Movie for the Entire Family

Before I tell you anything about this movie, I want to deal with the question of Margaret O'Brien vs. Shirley Temple as child actresses. Over the years, I don't believe Margaret was acclaimed to the degree of Shirley. Shirley was a terribly cute child who could sing and dance. Her talent was without question, particularly during the dismal years in which she brought welcome relief to our citizens who had just endured the Depression and the early years of World War II. Shirley cheered you up and made you happy to see such a delightful child. But Margaret was different in so many ways from Shirley. If you want to see an incredibly accomplished young actress, then you must see "Lost Angel." Margaret dominates the film. When she is on-screen, you can hardly take your eyes off her. She is a very unique child of 6 years playing the part of a child who is 6 years old. Her poise and diction and sheer talent is simply outstanding. This child is an actress in the fullest sense of the word. She is incredible to behold and makes the simple story a joy to watch, especially in the cynical world of 2006. The story itself concerns an infant who is dropped off on the doorstep of an institution. She is raised by scientists and has a remarkably adult view of the world. But it seems the scientists left something out of her upbringing, and a more worldly view is brought to her by a reporter and a nightclub singer. In summary, this is a "feel good" movie for all ages and some of our modern parents who feel the best way to raise a child is to indulge their every whim should sit down with them and watch this film together. I guarantee all ages will be entertained and will learn something about good behavior at the same time.
