It was wonderful to see that Jean Byron still has the prettiest smile since Sara Allgood (How Green Was My Valley).
Otherwise, fluffy, with a script a bit on the lame, predictable side, this story got tired in a short time. I don't even think I stayed with it till the end. It was good to see the cast again, though Paul O'Keefe could have phoned his part in. Perhaps there were too many new characters to give the originals enough tube time.
