Great Movie For the entire Family!
21 September 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a true Gem of a story that i originally saw back in 1974 when it was aired on the ABC Movie of the week i believe. It is a tear Jerker that will tug at your heart strings especially when Fred MacMurray's son who is dieing from a rare disease leaves Fred a Note That he reads just before leading his son's package delivery service air Plane(which was before Federal express By The Way) Up the street. It says "dad I hope you can be a good Scotsman" or something to that affect. Then you actually see Fred Marching ahead of a vehicle towing his son's plane and Fred Playing the bagpipes. As an extra bonus since it was filmed in San Diego i believe you get to see and hear the street beat (what the drum section plays when the band stops playing) from the United States Marine Corps Band Probably from Camp Pendleton. It is truly worth finding and watching. Good Old Fred MacMurray always played in clean wholesome ,family type movies. Loved him in Disney's "Flubber" and "Son of Flubber" "The absent minded Professor " and "the miracle of the bells" and Of Course "My Three Sons". Tom Mezzo Composer Garwood NJ
