Haley couldn't have been prettier!
3 August 2001 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

This film AKA "A Matter Of Innocence" was rushed in and out of theatres in the 60's! Haley Mills was trying to break away from her Disney image! The film is well down. Trevor Howard a veteran actor also gives a great performance! The soundtrack is also very enjoyable.
