A wonderful film!
11 January 2006 | by cannescrwrtrSee all my reviews

With all the blockbuster films released in Hollywood's Golden Year of 1939, this is one of the many motion pictures that was completely overshadowed that spectacular year.

An old man moves in with his now "grown-up" child, and hopes to be a help around the house. It soon becomes evident to the man, that he is indeed more of a bother than anything else.

When an orphan boy comes along, played remarkably by young Sonny Bupp, life again takes on new meaning for this kind-hearted elderly gent.

I rate this film 9 of 10, as a wonderful story, and because "No Place To Go" really brings the heart around to a more simple yet special way of life.
