Quotes

[first lines]
Bill Hastings: [narrating] Mother Nature does a fine job decorating most of the world for the holiday season, but here in Southern California, we have to give her a helping hand. Our snow is strictly synthetic. The trees come in all colors, including old-fashioned green, and Santa Claus drives Donner and Blitzen high over Beverly Hills with his sunglasses on.

Child steals the show
13 September 2017 | by dlbhinaSee all my reviews

This is a touching story, performed with a wry sense of spirit. Although the parents were miscast, George Winslow steals every scene as a determined, audacious young boy who seeks to have his awol father home for Christmas. Filmed in B&W, it could easily be redone today as a classic story, but you would be hard pressed to find another Winslow.
