A poignant comedy about a mute who befriends Nicole, the little daughter of a prostitute. Gleason shows his considerable talents as an actor without uttering a sound as he plays the bumbling, kind-hearted janitor, Gigot. Gleason wrote the original story and music for this film.Written by

Jackie Gleason may have been the greatest entertainer of all time. This movie shows that he wasn't all "booze, broads, cigarettes, and showgirls." When I first saw that this movie had Jackie in it, I thought it was a "vanity film" (sometimes stars take movies to satisfy large egos) but I sure was wrong. This is a wonderful movie full of heart and love. Only people with good souls could make a movie like this. I highly recommend this movie and once you see this movie you'll see that Jackie Gleason was a big man with a big heart.
