Disney musical about Mother Carey, a Bostonian widow and her three children who move to Maine. Postmaster Osh Popham helps them move into a run-down old house and fixes it up for them. It's not entirely uninhabited, though; the owner, a Mr. Hamilton, is a mysterious character away in Europe, but Osh assures them he won't mind their living there, since he won't be coming home for a long time yet. The children and a cousin who comes to live with them have various adventures before an unexpected visitor shows up. Written by
What a little pearl of a movie! No smut, no foul language, no violence...just good clean shenanigans. They don't make them like this any more, and it's a shame. Haley Mills is as sweet and feisty as can be, and all the supporting players do good jobs. But for me the real star of the movie is Burl Ives. His down-home folksiness is just perfect for the role of the good-hearted Osh. His singing is timeless. Seeing this movie makes me want to fire up the time machine.
