In 1942, Mary Pickford hoped to personally produce this film for United Artists with Shirley Temple. After several years of sitting on the shelf, Pickford sold the property to 20th Century-Fox. See more »
A lovely black & white movie about family life in New York City in the forties.
I saw this movie as a pre-teenager living in New York, so I really identified with the main character played by Peggy Ann Garner. The location shots at the ice-skating rink at Rockefeller Center and Central Park in the winter (when Judy and Fuffy are sitting on a park bench eating cookies in their winter coats) are charming indeed. The story will keep movie fans interested. There is romance, generation gaps, family situations all centered around a couple of teen-age pals living in the same apartment building with a big sister thrown in for fun. Every time I see this movie, I am back in 1945 as a ten year old seeing this movie during the summer with my father.
