Review

A star rating of 3 out of 5.

Bing Crosby acquits himself admirably in this non-musical (though he does perform a handful of songs) in one of his few dramatic roles. He plays an American news reporter who returns to France after the Second World War to find his "lost" son. Crosby is well supported by a splendid French cast, including Nicole Maurey and little Christian Fourcade, as the boy he finds in an orphanage and hopes is his son. Made in France, the film, based on a story by Marghanita Laski, is a pleasant, but modest, tear-jerker.
