A family film bold enough to treasure the inherent goodness of all children and to celebrate the virtues of nonviolence, honesty, and compassion.

Not enjoyable to watch at all. It wasn't good, and it wasn't even funny at all, it was too childish.

A terriblely sickly and sweet movie following Jo Marsh, after to marriage to Prof.Baher, and her life as a school marm taking in young wayward and homeless boys. The plot line is so unbelievely wholesome, I wanted to gag, and the story was just barely interesting enough to keep me around. The child actors hold their own (for what it's worth) but everyone else came off cold and stale. With another director and better script, I could see this being a better film:rotten:
