Sally O'Moyne, a good-natured but awkward school-girl lives with her extended and eccentric Irish-American clan. One day at school, unable to find her lunch bucket, Sally says a prayer to St. Anne in hope of heavenly assistance. When Sally finds her lunch, she believes a miracle has happened, convincing her of a special relationship with the saint. Meanwhile, some animosity between the O'Moyne family and a neighbor grows and manifests itself in various comic situations. The plot develops as Sally, firm in her belief in St. Anne, emerges from adolescence an attractive young woman, and discovers the opposite sex. The feud, along with Sally's personal life, works itself to resolution in this light, nostalgic look at growing up Catholic in the 1940s and 1950s. Written by

I was lucky (smart?) enough to have taped this movie back in my 'beta' days, made a copy to VHS later but always kept the original which I later used to move it to DVD, yes I still have a working Beta Machine! ..thank goodness because I have not seen it on TV since and people think I make up the movie when I talk about it every Christmas.
I would snap it up so fast if they would only put it out in DVD format.
I have a slew of movies I watch in December and this one and "Say One For Me" (another hard to find movie) are 2 that I save for Christmas Eve.
Such a sweet movie and so wonderfully 'dated' ..."prunes..."
