Description by OLDIES.com:

When a little orphan boy receives a genuine ray gun that compels anyone caught in its beam to tell the truth, he uses it to help a couple fall in love and prevent his orphanage from being shut down by creditors.

Product Description:

The strangest aspect of the low-budget fantasy effort THE ROCKET MAN is the fact that one of its screenwriters was Lenny Bruce. There's nothing scatalogical or even satirical in the film itself, however. Essentially an Andy Hardyesque comedy drama with a peripheral sci-fi slant, the story concerns a lonely orphan boy named Timmy (George "Foghorn" Winslow) who receives a toy ray gun for Christmas. Only it isn't a toy, but the genuine article, dropped off by a friendly spaceman. Whenever Timmy shoots the gun at someone, the rays cause the "victim" to speak nothing but the truth. The gun comes in handy when the villain of the piece (Emory Parnell) tries to evict the orphans. Timmy also uses the weapon to expedite the romance of nominal leads Anne Francis and John Agar. Also appearing in ROCKET MAN are Spring Byington and Charles Coburn, who'd previously been felicitously teamed in LOUISA (1950).
