This is a forgotten classic from the 40's by Republic. It was sadly remade in 1957 with the wonderful Ethel Barrymore. The remake doesn't hold a candle to the 1943 film. When Republic Studio hit hit's mark, it really did make some memorable films such as this with Mabel Paige. I think the sentimental screenplay was just not right foe the late 50's. But it is a film to be treasured and will wring a tear from even the hardest heart. I recently saw the remake JOHNNY TROUBLE on TCM and though it was occasionally well meaning, it lacked the heart of the original. Don't miss this film if you are able to find it in it's original 80 minute length. Unfortunately many versions have been cut to as low as 60 minutes.
