Goofs

Lem takes Vida to the movies on their first date to see a Ronald Colman and Carole Lombard picture, but his dialogue is interrupted (conveniently) before he can name the movie title. In front of the theater the marquis shows the title of the feature, "Altar Bound", along with the two stars names. The movie "Altar Bound" however, appears to be fictional. See more »

A well-acted feel-good tear-jerker
12 June 2004 | by (New Jersey) – See all my reviews

I was six years old when I saw this movie in the theaters in 1966. Back then the screens were big and a little kid like me, seeing other kids on screen looking bigger-than-life, wanted to be just like them. I never joined the boy scouts, but the film's somewhat typical Disney values definitely had an influence on me. Now let's fast-forward almost 40 years later and look at the film from a grown-up perspective. The acting here is marvelous. Anyone over 40 knows all about Fred MacMurray and the great actor that he was, both on TV and in films. Throw in the pretty Vera Miles, the legendary Lillian Gish, and the I-know-his-voice-from-Saturday-morning-cartoons Charlie Ruggles, and it all comes together nicely. The best part of this film? Not the catchy Sherman Brothers theme song...but perhaps one of the best child-actor performances ever...Kurt Russel. Want a movie where you'll cry a bit but then feel real good at the end? Follow this one!
