  • Well Done. Sad. Uncomfortable.

    Was it normal in 1930 for a divorced father (who is a respected and well known scientist) to be forbidden to contact his children except the one month a year when he is allowed custody? Not even to call or write a letter? That seems like a plot device to keep the story dramatic.Otherwise, this is a very touching and sad tale of the difficulties of an 8 year old boy and his family adjusting to divorce and a new stepfather. Jackie Cooper (Terry) who seems like Shirley Temple in his ability to pout and cry on cue, is very natural in his boyish naughtiness. Everyone older has his best interests at heart and everyone screws up somehow. Even Terry screws up and makes his own situation worse. He's too upset to try to understand his new stepfather and greatly upsets his own father with his exagerations. The step father, tries to be understanding and a good sport, but is sorely tried by the kid, goes overboard due to his inexperience and frustration. His rather weak mother is torn between her sympathy for her son and her need to establish a new home and family unit. They all try, they all screw up, they all figure it out. Worth watching.
