I've watched this film many times & love it
15 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a true story with quite a few twists on reality but well done & fun to watch. Bernice Feagan was my mother & we had no idea that a story had been written about her adventure until we saw it on cable.She passed away in 1998 and never did figure out how it was made without her knowledge.In reality, she contacted President Hoover at age 13 to have my grandfather pardoned from prison for car theft and she and one of her younger brothers & sisters ( Ray & Irene ) went with her to Washington on a Greyhound bus supplied by the company owner probono. She did meet with Hoover & her & her siblings appeared in many major newspapers in big photographs, likely a publicity stunt as no one was happy with Hoover in 1932 in the throws of depression. He pardoned my grandpa ( Charles Feagan , not Angus) & shortly thereafter mom's mom died from appendicitis. My mother became the new mother of 5 little siblings & lived a very hard life as my grandpa was disabled with Parkinson's disease. the true story of my mom's life was very interesting and I am writing about it now. Hopefully a movie can be made about her real life. She was very tough but loving. John
