Editorial Reviews

James Cagney and Barbara Stanwyck shine in their only screen pairing, a powerful story of loss and regret costarring Walter Pidgeon. After 20 years, middle-aged steel magnate Steve Bradford (Cagney) has decided to return to his hometown to take care of some unfinished business. Determined to find the son he fathered while still in high school, he tangles with orphanage director Ann Dempster (Stanwyck), who refuses to give him the young man’s name. Turning to the courts in a brazen attempt to force Dempster to reveal the information, Bradford gets more than he bargained for when she introduces him to Suzie Keller (Betty Lou Keim), an expectant 16-year-old who helps him realize that the wishes and feelings of others may be more important than his own.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely old weepie March 3, 2014

Cagney and Stanwyck at their very best; this film should be far more widely-known than it is. May I give away the fact that there is the obligatory happy ending under a Christmas tree?

5.0 out of 5 stars A Powerful drama for Cagney and Stanwyck fans February 16, 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I have to say I am a fan of both James Cagney and Barbara Stanwyck. When I happened to see that they made a movie together, I figure how could I go wrong? Well I was right. this movie was fantastic. The plot was well thought of and well written. Then put two power houses like Cagney and Stanwyck together and you have a great entertainment for sure. Cagney plays a wealthy man who has almost everything. the one thing he lacks is the child he fathered when he was in high school that was given up for adoption. Now that he has all the money in the world, he decides he wants to track down his long lost child. He meets up with Ms Stanwyck who plays the head of the adoption agency and the battle begins. A great story with a wonderful ending.......

4.0 out of 5 stars soap opera type tale rechristened to fit star October 26, 2012
It's unusual to find tough actor star Cagney in soap opera type tale..why would he make such a vehicle especially since months prior it was announced to be filmed by different actors. Cagney rose to stardom at warner's but left it being one of the top stars, to start his own production company, but those films never seemed to make their way, and he returned to warner's in films like White Heat and Kiss Tomorrow Goodbye(banned in Ohio the stated reason" a sordid
sadistic presentation of brutality and an extreme presentation of crime..explicit steps in commission)..and he left the studio again in the mid 50's and in 1956 saw hinself in this film. It was meant to focus I believe on young persons and was announced to star Debbie Reynolds called All our Tomorrows..then recalled Somewhere I'll Find Him..then released under a different name with different stars. Miss Reynolds was unavailable when filming started and here we have Cagney a business tycoon, who finds himself alone and reflects on his past life, and recalls a young girl with whom he has a child and a lost son and seeks them out. At an orphanage. He is tough in ways and dislikes the dreamy sentiment of the orphanage director played by Stanwyck(her role is minor here) and whatever the film was in its minor stages, here the tale focuson Cagney and his psychology, the modern courts and even Superior courts, and what drives this man to seek out young girls and children, and why the system in this case refuses to knuckle in to him. The courts really took over jurisdiction and care over children, from religious establishments..and here's a character who laces judgements all around and is always referred to as Mr..and younger girls are well disposed toward him and he meets a 16 year old with child who ends up in a crash...
