      Steve D Paper thin but mildly amusing. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 06/24/23 Full Review rob m One of William Holden's more obscure films, and one of his last "Smiling Jim" films, that tells the sweet story of a lazy bachelor who manages to accidentally wind up caring for five orphaned children. There are plenty of songs, there's humor, and even some romance with Coleen Gray. It's a saccharine film and completely predictable but still a joy to discover this one.
