Description by OLDIES.com:
Young Ronnie Kimball is a critically acclaimed violin prodigy. He is also a lucrative cash cow for his greedy mother, his aunts and his manager. His full schedule leaves no time for play and he's really starting to chafe under the unrelenting workload. Ronnie runs away, determined to experience the real world beyond the stage, but his disappearance is believed to be a kidnapping. Soon the missing musician's story is front-page news. Happy on the open road, Ronnie is easy prey for underworld types who see profits of their own to be made off the footloose lad.
Ronald Sinclair (aka Ra Hould) was an appealing teenage actor who made sixteen films between 1936 and 1942, most notably as young Scrooge in A Christmas Carol (1938) and Prince Edward in Tower of London (1939). After the war interrupted his film career, he turned to editing, starting with the 1953 classic, The Moon is Blue. Sinclair also worked on a string of sci-fi classics, such as The Day the World Ended (1955), The She-Creature (1956), The Amazing Colossal Man (1957) and Attack of the Puppet People (1958). Hedda Hopper, his co-star in Dangerous Holiday, was a popular actress in the Twenties and Thirties before becoming one of America's best known and most influential gossip columnists.
A young violin prodigy hits the road when practicing all day means he can't roughhouse like a typical boy. His disappearance has alarms ringing. Fine family picture featuring Hopper in pre-Hollywood-columnist days.
