Delightful Old B Picture
29 April 2012 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Delightful old B Picture available on Netflix and perfect for a rainy Saturday afternoon. Super cheaply made with writing and a plot that will make you smile, even at its own inadequacies. Fast paced and thoroughly entertaining. Richard Denning and Frances Rafferty are likable as they fight to keep their adopted daughter from being taken away from them. Their sickeningly sweet little girl grows on you until she's actually fun and appealing. Filled with familiar faces from old B Films, all playing their usual typecast characters. And all are placed in the context of those cheap 1940's sets which all look remarkably the same.

All the vicious comments about this B film are true yet it's still fun to watch. Be sure and make some popcorn and grab a coke before you begin.
