At the beginning of the film, when Steve goes through the door from his office into the boardroom, the view looking back into his office from the boardroom is nothing like the office he just left. There are pictures where a large window should be. And, view out of the boardroom window is completely different than the view out of Steve's office window - which is right next door. See more »
This film turned out to be a real tear-jerker, but in a good way!! James Cagney takes centre stage as the man looking for the son he has never seen. Barbara Stanwyck is good in a supporting role, although I felt she could have been given an even better part. There are some lovely scenes between Cagney and the young girl he ends up bonding with and overall I did enjoy this movie very much.
