Loretta Young at her finest.
13 August 2001 | by (New Jersey) – See all my reviews

A heart warming story line that most can relate to. Loretta Young brings her strength, intelligence and charm to this role. My regret is that I can't find this film on VHS to add to my collection. I would love to be able to enjoy it over and over and over again.
