Description by OLDIES.com:

Dickie Moore stars as seven-year-old Thomas Hall, Jr. whose life is tragically torn apart when his mother walks out on his philandering father. The devastating effect of divorce on young children is dramatically brought home in this unforgettable Monogram tearjerker.

Young Dickie Moore made his film debut as an 18 month old baby in John Barrymore's Beloved Rogue (1927), and by the time he was 10 years old, the popular child star had appeared in over 50 films, including several "Our Gang" shorts. Moore appeared in many fine films including Blonde Venus (1932), Song Of Bernadette (1941) and most notably as the lead in Oliver Twist (1933). Toward the end of his career, Moore co-starred in the popular 1950s series, "Captain Video and the Video Rangers." He is also known to trivia fans for bestowing Shirley Temple's first screen kiss in 1942's Miss Annie Rooney when she was 14.

Charles Lamont would go on to make over 200 films during his career. During the 1940s and 50s he was one of Universal Studios' principal comedy directors, working extensively on the "Ma and Pa Kettle" series and several classic Abbott & Costello comedies, including Abbott and Costello in the Foreign Legion (1950), Abbott and Costello Meet the Invisible Man (1951) and Abbott and Costello Meet the Mummy (1955).

Product Description:

Baby-faced child star Dickie Moore toplines this overtly sentimental melodrama. Helmed by director Charles Lamont (MA AND PA KETTLE), the movie was a product of the B-picture-oriented Monogram Studios. Seven-year-old Thomas Hall, Jr.'s(Moore) mother leaves his unfaithful father. The parents' actions not only break the family in half, but threaten to destroy the child's life and permanently rob him of innocence.
