Capra's next to last film, a tale of a widower and his young son, is not up to his level but the film is entertaining due to the star turn of Frank Sinatra, and of course the popular Oscar-winning tune "High Hopes," which he sings.
Weak Capra light drama does have Sinatra and Edward G.
Overlong, reactionary, but enjoyable with enough of the old Capra magic to make it work.
