12 year old Tony is content living with his fisherman father until the boy's broke yet snobbish aunt and cousin, approximately twelve too, move in and try to alter the household to their liking.

Plot a little like that of Peck's Bad Boy, which is a better film, the 1934 version at least. This however is not bad, featuring as it does Bobby Breen's fine singing and a good performance from secondary-child-roles veteran Tommy Bupp.

A real vintage movie and it shows on the DVD I have! Bobby Breen, while not a particularly good looking boy being upstaged by the better looking Tommy Bupp in that department, sings beautifully however. His rendering of 'Ave Maria' is specially notable. The relationship between him and his spoiled brat of a cousin (Bupp) is well handled by the director. This is pure nostalgia, with hammy Italian acting and poor orphan boy makes good. Can't beat it.
