Unlike the other reviewers I thought this movie was good fun, but then I've always enjoyed the older movies from the 40's and 50's. Yes, this movie is not an Academy Award contender but one must also remember the time period in which this was filmed. It was a much different world then and the types of situations the characters in this movie find themselves in were very "serious" back then. Margaret O'Brien more than holds her own, as did Eleanor Donahue in her role. I didn't realize she was ever a blonde! All in all, if you find yourself in the mood to watch a movie from a much simpler time in our history then I'd suggest you pop some popcorn, grab a quilt, sit back and enjoy the movie for what it is.
