Norm Jenkins finds Sammy's suitcase and learns his identity but doesn't tell anyone about the suitcase. Yet the entire town knew and used his full name, presumably starting soon after his first day in Barrington, and the police never searched for his mother after that first day even though his name was known.

This isn't gonna be a highway interchange. This is the nothin'est nothin' I ever saw.
Maybe there's oil under here. Maybe we're floating on a gusher and don't even know it.

This film had several flaws. Firstly, it progressed too slowly. The main character had very little to do in this film, which I suppose couldn't be helped given the plot. Almost the entire film was spent retelling the lives of other people. Secondly, the characters and plot were unrealistic. Are we really to believe that someone would be able to convince others of his deafness for so many years without being found out? And the supporting characters were too melodramatic. They over acted at every turn.
