In person, child film star Kathy O'Rourke belies her sweet image. Studio publicity man Harry Johnson must keep Celeste, a national magazine writer, from discovering this when writing a piece on Kathy. This won't be easy; Celeste is Harry's ex-wife. To Harry's surprise, Kathy and Celeste make friends; it seems all Kathy really needed was love... But when Kathy runs away to join Celeste, Harry is suspected of kidnapping. Written by

I saw this movie in a theater in 1958 or 1959 and I never forgot it. Tonight I watched it again on a tape that I recorded from AMC many years ago. Unfortunately, it is a pan and scan version of a CinemaScope picture. Patty McCormack was such a natural actress whom I fell in love with when I was 11 years old. The musical score was beautiful, especially when they played "Where Are You?" in the scenes where Dan Duryea and Jan Sterling were together. If only Universal would release this in a widescreen DVD, I'd be the first to buy it. It is perfect for the whole family and it has a Christmas theme. It's a shame that they don't make clean, entertaining family pictures like this today.
