In 1936 New York City, pretty pig-tailed Margaret O'Brien (as Flavia Mills) leads a charmed life. She roller-skates through traffic oblivious to danger, which works out well because the little "Tenth Avenue Angel" may be divinely protected. Young O'Brien believes in country, God and fantastical stories shared by several loving adults in her life, especially sweet mother Phyllis Thaxter (as Helen). One of these stories suggests mice bring money; another involves a magical cow...
The difference between truth, lies and fantasy confuses O'Brien as nice guy George Murphy (as Steve) gets out of jail. O'Brien has been told Mr. Murphy was in Australia. Due to both the Depression and his criminal past, Murphy has trouble finding work as a taxi driver and marrying O'Brien's aunt Angela Lansbury (as Susan). This was not a bad story idea, but too saccharine an approach for the still capable little actress, who needed something less obvious to revitalize a limited career.
***** Tenth Avenue Angel (2/20/48) Roy Rowland ~ Margaret O'Brien, George Murphy, Angela Lansbury, Phyllis Thaxter
