Editorial Reviews

Salty sailor Mike Malone needs a speedy lift back to San Pedro Navy Base to avoid being AWOL. He meets a young boy and his dog on the road, and deciding that the cuteness factor will increase their chances of getting a ride, the two pose as father and son. The ruse works, and they are picked up by beautiful Stevie Moore, who just happens to be the Admiral's daughter. Mike and Stevie have no idea that the boy is a runaway from the orphange, and that the sailor is now in deep hot water, with both the Navy and the police.

Director William Nigh brings Jean Parker and Academy Award winner James Dunn together in this breezy war-time romance. Jean Parker delivers an energetic performance in this humorous tale of a young boy who convinces an unromantic pair to become his loving parents.

I gave this movie 5 stars because it is a decent little movie that provides a welcome break from the grit and grind of the real world. The boy in this movie had the wit and determination to make positive things happen that could turn his dream of a better life into a reality. Since it is winter, and perhaps you are one of those families that can't get out of your driveway, just brew some hot chocolate and introduce the children to a snip-it of film history.

What a thrilling critique on the American family unit. This fantastic look at monogamy, gender, and ageist issues truly sets a precedent in early film making for a bold tackling of ethical mores. Attacking the idea of the mom, pop, and two and a half kids ideal, this hair raising cinematic experience shows that love and compassion can come from even the dullest and ill tempered human trash. Blood relations mean nothing to the characters of this film, and the latent homosexual urges of the captain of the Navy vessel added a three dimensional quality to an otherwise cardboard character. This movie is all over the map, but if you can keep up, you will never forget it.
