Nobody I talk to has ever seen or even heard of this movie but it is SO good. This is the movie that every student in film school should be told to watch in order to understand what it means for a movie to have "heart". Jackie Gleason gives one of his very best performances of his entire career. No Gleason fan should ever pass up an opportunity to watch this film.
