A child's view of war and the viewer's look at the effects of war on the child.Very realistic London of World War II made during the war. A movie that offered war time families hope. Five year old Margaret O'Brien as the orphan girl will tug at your heart in a way only the "old time" movies could. DO NOT miss the hopeful ending of this film.
