Goofs

In Ronnie's first football scrimmage with the Wee Kids Company (studio kids), he lines up at defensive right tackle across from a tall boy playing offensive left tackle. When the play starts, the offensive tackle charges into Ronnie, driving him back as they grapple and fall to the ground whereupon Tommy Bupp's character congratulates Ronnie saying "that was some tackle" [05:48], but they weren't anywhere near the ball.

Ronnie Kimball is a child prodigy when it comes to playing the violin. He enjoys it but his relatives and agent want to overwork him and exploit his talents while making a hefty percentage of his earnings. Also, his aunts don't want him swimming or playing football with his friends because he might get hurt. Frustrated by this, Ronnie takes off on his own for a bit and ends up on a 'dangerous holiday'.

Ronald Sinclair is one of the most happy-go-lucky kids I've ever seen in a film. He always has a welcoming smile and doesn't seem to let anything bother him, even when he gets mixed up with a gang of criminals. Guinn 'Big Boy' Williams does a nice turn playing Duke, the "bad guy" with a soft spot.

All in all, "Dangerous Holiday" is nothing more than a trifle. However, at 58 minutes, this film rolls along quickly and provides a pleasant diversion for about an hour.
