Goofs

In many scenes of the movie, Leo Smith (played by Billy E. Hughes) is seen wearing a rather flashy gold ring on his left hand. He and his five siblings are supposedly unwanted and basically homeless, none of them has more than the clothes on their backs, so it seems he would not have been wearing a ring. Evidently Billy Hughes forgot to take off his personal jewelry, and nobody noticed in time. Watch for the ring (among other scenes) where Debbie Reynolds is talking to him about praying to God, or when he is opening some of the boxes of clothing that were bought for him and he is examining his new shoes. The ring is plainly visible. See more »

Wonderful Family Movie
29 May 2003 | by gpadilloSee all my reviews

I saw this movie at a drive-in theatre with my family when I was 4 years old. I remembered parts of it, most notably the six orphans living in the woods behind Debbie Reynolds' house. Those memories have stayed with me my entire life, but couldn't remember the name of it, or its stars.

While channel surfing the other night, it was just beginning, and I didn't recognize it (I'd completely forgotten the beginning of the film). Within minutes the hair was standing on the back of my neck as I recognized this as "that movie" I saw almost 40 years ago! I stayed up half the night watching it, and remembering my childhood.

Hopefully this will make it onto DVD. As a jaded 40 something year old, I was surprised how moved I was by this little movie, and I can't get the song "It's a Darn Good Thing" outta my head!

Wonderful family viewing.
