    With a solid cast of recognizable character actors, this Little Miss Marker do-over putters along well enough with moving the story from Broadway to the West Coast. A little girl lost melts the heart of a hard guy. Beyond the story though, and just as interesting, there's a look at the United States before the Kennedy assassination, as well as a Keystone Cops chase romp through Disneyland. Fluff, maybe, but its okay.

    The movie itself is not very good, but the fifteen minutes that take place at Disneyland were neat and allow you to see what the park looked like in its earlier days. The rest of the film aside from that was sadly not worth watching. (First and only viewing - 1/11/2019)

    a fantastic tony curtis romp plus a must for all disney park nerds as there is a lot of cinema quality footage of disneyland in the early 60's.
