Child's Play

What an interesting drama I just discovered. A rare one. The opening sequence, when a young boy kills a man as a game, in the sunny countryside, with a music played by a record player, a crooner !!, is outstanding. Terrific. The following is quite more routine. But fairly touching, sweet, delicate. The story of a little boy raised by his father after his mother's death, and who committed a murder without realizing it.

And the wrong man is accused of it. The police investigates.

A very interesting feature. Very.

Lance Comfort's films deserve to be discovered again.
