Child's play
17 December 2015 | by searchanddestroy-1See all my reviews

A rather funny story which begins with Stu asked for because a star female child seems to have stolen a jewel from her family. As you see, you deal here with a sort of light, comedy tale. The ten years old little actress is amusing and most of the interest of this episode remains on her. If a great Hollywood director would have made it, I would have seen Walter Lang or Georges Sidney, or Sid Landfield; here it is Leslie Martinson. OK, there is a little thriller line here, where some adult elements remain after all, besides the child's playground. That's not an unforgettable story, but amusing enough to waste fifty minutes of your time.
