As a Child, Margie was my favorite movie.
10 January 2004 | by (Maple Grove, MN) – See all my reviews

I have looked for the movie in the stores without any success. "Margie" was wholesome and refreshing. Hopefully today the movie industry will produce movies that the family can sit back and enjoy like we did in the mid 40's and 50's.
