I loved this movie for the story, the setting and Bing Crosby.
17 February 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie is one of Bing Crosby's best. I liked it better than "The Country Girl." In this dramatic role he is very believable as a father looking for a son he thought was gone. The storyline is a serious one and Crosby plays his part with compassion and urgency. The little boy in the movie is great and enjoyable to watch. I have been looking for this movie for many years and have friends who have also been looking for this movie on VHS or DVD. When I first saw "Little Boy Lost" I couldn't understand why I hadn't seen it before the 80's. The story takes place after WWII and perhaps there wasn't a market for this type of movie. I saw it on AMC and then it disappeared. It is heartwarming and the setting in Paris makes it very believable as I'm sure that the situation portrayed in the movie happened to a lot of GI's. I highly recommend this movie if it ever comes out on DVD. I can't wait to see it again.
