Trivia

It was during the filming of this movie that Cliff Robertson learned that President Kennedy had personally chosen Cliff Robertson to play him in PT 109 (1963). See more »

Goofs

In many scenes of the movie, Leo Smith (played by Billy E. Hughes) is seen wearing a rather flashy gold ring on his left hand. He and his five siblings are supposedly unwanted and basically homeless, none of them has more than the clothes on their backs, so it seems he would not have been wearing a ring. Evidently Billy Hughes forgot to take off his personal jewelry, and nobody noticed in time. Watch for the ring (among other scenes) where Debbie Reynolds is talking to him about praying to God, or when he is opening some of the boxes of clothing that were bought for him and he is examining his new shoes. The ring is plainly visible. See more »

Meh
29 May 2016 | by (North Bend WA) – See all my reviews

I suppose this is a "family movie," but it moves along so slowly I would not expect families to stay around to watch it.

A New York stage star goes to her house in Connecticut to relax, discovers a troop of six kids on her property living in a garage, and with the help of a young pastor and a cynical New York producer, finds it in her heart to help them out in life, especially when their mean, drunk parents come around to "take them back." It has the elements of a good movie. Debbie Reynolds, Cliff Robertson, David Janssen, Eileen Heckart, even Hans Conreid. But it just falls flat. The funny parts are not all that funny. The slow dramatic parts are slow and dramatic, with the heartfelt revelation by Debbie Reynolds that she can just kinda adopt these six kids who will instantly bond with her.

Some good moments - the movie song she sings with the kids is fun.

And her outfits are quite nice. There is one scene where she is wearing a somewhat mint-green dress and an emerald necklace, which make the color of her eyes pop out, and the pink-champagne wig she wears also helps.

But while it's not a disaster, it is just a movie without really anything at stake.
