This film was available in the early 1960's and reminiscent of the family sit-coms of that time.. It is about the goody-two-shoes well-intentioned daughter of a judge as she dabbles in rehabilitating the "insensitive and unfeeling" criminal justice system. The idea of treating a convicted felon as a high school truant, and rehabilitating him to responsible citizenry without first receiving his agreement to do same was quite ludicrous. One begins to feel sorry for the felon (Lyle Bettger). Naive to say the least. Mona Freeman's depiction of the "brat" was superficial and irritating. Honest effort by Edward Arnold.
An exceptionally funny comedy.The direction, the acting, the timing, the storyline, are all spectacular. Don't miss the presence of Natalie wood as a very young teenager. Her acting is best described as superb. Don't miss this gem.
I love the family and being able to get a copy of this old movie. It is not Dear Ruth, but I like the characters. I won't watch this as often as Dear Ruth, but I like having a copy for when I do want to watch all the movies in the series.
