Great fun and NEVER seen...
24 August 1999 | by (Stamford, CT) – See all my reviews

I've seen this film a few times but it's been years and I'd kill to find a copy of it. It's tremendously charming. The kids are terrific -- led by the wonderful Peggy Ann Garner. A really enjoyable 'B' pic that is not available on video. If it turns up at all it's on the Late Late Show. Stay up for this one. You'll be glad you did.
