Movie Info

Bing Crosby heads this heart-tugging post war drama of a grieving widower who is duped into forming an unbreakable bond with the French orphan he believes is his long-lost son. Crosby lost his beloved when the Nazis killed her for participating in the French resistance. Much later, Crosby is told that his son, who bears striking resemblance to his wife, is in a Paris orphanage. Despite the head nun's insistence that 8-year-old Fourcade is his boy, Crosby is skeptical and so tries to test the lad. When the boy fails the test, Crosby confronts the duplicitous sister who 'fesses up to her scheme and determination to see that her charges get good homes and happy lives. Though Crosby has come to love little Fourcade, he cannot get over his grief until he receives wise counsel from a very good friend. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Little Boy Lost

½

Sentimental drama casts Bing Crosby looking for his lost infant son in post WWII Paris. My interest kept alive primarily from liking Crosby, could get tiresome for others. None of the usual Crosby treatement here, he only sings a few songs. Mostly he is melancholy or sad thinking of his past marriage and the baby son lost somewhere in France. The search for the boy is as much a search for Crosby about himself, now a widower. He searches endlessly for his son and at last finds an orphanage that might have the boy, now older and without much memory of his mother or his father Crosby.
