    This is one of Margaret O'Brien's weaker films. She's the little girl that played in Meet Me In St. Louis, but although her character here is not as annoying as the precocious girl in Meet Me In St. Louis, she's still cloying and appears to have been surrounded by a wise family. Margaret O'Brien was 9-10 years old here, this movie had had production problems which kind of ruined the film for her because at times, she doesn't look much like an 8-year-old. Though, I still loved her marvelous performance and the expressions and emotions she conveys are real. This just strikes me as something that they have wasted Margaret's talent on, the director didn't seem to get her to perform her scenes as well as she did in other movies. And the script could've been rewritten in order for the movie to be a great one.

    It's heart is in the right place but this is puerile and cloying.

    Near perferction! This movie almost made me start believing in miracles too. Margaret O'Brien was charming and adorable, super talented kid who was spunky yet lovable but not overly sappy-cute. Very talented, very believable. Great movie, truly a classic!

    Your head says, "this is kinda sappy, yo." But suddenly you're all misty eyed. Curse that Margaret O'Brien and her dark talents!
