Movie Info

In this film, a girl is adopted into a small-town family, but instead of finding happiness, she finds her life a living nightmare due to neighbors' constant speculation as to the father's identity. The scuttlebutt is that she is the illegitimate daughter of a prominent lawyer and former resident.

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (2)

The most painful part of this very painful picture is the contrast it insists on between Miss Temple and the rest of the cast.

They shouldn't do such things to Shirley. It's downright un-American!

New York Times
Top Critic

This is an oddity not only for the casting of future politicos Reagan and Temple in the same film, but due to its rotten script and nearly incomprehensible resolution.
