Merry Christmas from a sentimental old fool!
The acting isn't great, the quality isn't much, and the storyline is highly predictable. What more could you ask for?
The 50's at it's sappy best, and being the sap that I am I teared up at the happy ending! It's worth a watch if you aren't a perfectionist who is turned off by low production standards.
