This is one of a dozen motion pictures seen during childhood that impressed me, and possibly changed my life, if only a little.
12 January 2002 | by cayuqui_eSee all my reviews

I saw this movie with my mother in 1944, and it made a lasting impression upon me. We lived in Buffalo and both of us agreed that San Diego would be a better place for us and decided that some day we would live there. Though this never came about, and I have never been to San Diego, it must have "put a bee in my bonnet" because eventually I came to Mexico where I have been living permanently since 1955. This is a motion picture I would like to see again.
