Joan Carroll shines despite it all
26 October 2002 | by See all my reviews

Like Obliging Young Lady, this film was supposed to launch a Shirley Temple like career for Joan. The only trouble was that the script writers didn't give her more lines, better roles and the like. As seen in supporting roles like those in Meet Me in St. Louis, The Bells of St. Marys and Tomorrow the World-she was a talented young actress, who with more work and better care film career wise she could have done so much better work. Still, this film is worth watching to see Joan in her starring glory, for what it was.
