Pleasant star vehicle for Lilli Palmer...but largely forgotten today...
23 December 2006 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

MY GIRL TISA gave American audiences their first real glimpse of the charms of LILLI PALMER who had been making waves in Great Britain in a number of films for a decade previously. Here she has the starring role as a Hungarian immigrant dealing with the plight of survival in New York's lower East side, swarming with tenement apartments, sweatshops and all the rascals needed to keep the plot spinning.

SAM WANAMAKER was a pleasant choice for a co-star and Warner surrounded them with a nice supporting cast headed by AKIM TAMIROFF (studying hard for his naturalization test), HUGO HAAS, STELLA ADLER and ALAN HALE and gave the production some nice pictorial touches with regard to costumes and music for the early 20th century flavor.

But the story is a slight one, never amounting to much, although it does deal with the immigration of European immigrants in a detailed way not usually explored in films from this era.

Summing up: Passes the time pleasantly and provides a star-making role for LILLI PALMER.
