Nevada police take into custody drifter Mark Jonah, although he claims he was an innocent hitchhiker, after the crash of a stolen car in which hoodlum Jerry Taggart is killed. Mark escapes and, while sleeping in a field two days later, is awakened when an eight-year-old blind girl, Nina, stumbles over him. Nina leads Mark to three other blind children---Kim, Little Joe and Cathy. The youngster's, sensing Mark's gentleness, take him to their summer camp for blind children. There, he meets Tracy, a girl his own age who is also blind. He is mistaken for the camp's new handyman by Tracy's housekeeper, Nonna, who views him with suspicion, and also meets the other children, Richard, Velma and Pepe. The children learn to love Mark, whom they follow everywhere, as their Pied Piper figure. Led by tough Barney Glover, the police finally catch up to Jonah. But a well-known local character, Wilfred Bashford, clears Mark, who returns to Tracy and his new "family." Written by

I saw this on Cable years and years ago, and I think of it so often. It's like losing a good friend by moving away. I hate that I can't play it any time I want. I think I will write to the cable companies and find out how to request that it play. Every other movie plays over and over. This one should too. I take offense to the writer who said this was a bad Elvis-type movie. Wayne Newton was young then, and probably hadn't even been compared to Elvis at that time. This is a cute little family movie that makes you feel like there may be a little good in the world after all. Nowadays, you don't get too much of that. I sure hope I am able to get a copy of this movie. I would love to sit and watch it with my Grandson. Thank you for your time.
