Disney musical about Margaret Carey (Dorothy McGuire), a Bostonian widow and her three children who move to Maine. Postmaster Ostia "Osh" Popham (Burl Ives) helps them move into a run-down old house and fixes it up for them. It's not entirely uninhabited, though. The owner, a Mr. Tom Hamilton (Peter Brown), is a mysterious character away in Europe, but Osh assures them he won't mind their living there, since he won't be coming home for a long time yet. The children and a cousin who comes to live with them have various adventures before an unexpected visitor shows up.
THAT WONDERFUL HAYLEY! a-flitterin' in a romantic whirl of her own!
