Just watched this movie for the first time on tcm. Missing old lady gets mixed up with jewel thieves while escaping her own annoying family, it's a cute story. No amazing plot twists, or performances, but it's interesting to watch a movie released so close to censorship becoming more strict. Its only a few months later. There is a strong moral tone throughout the movie, but some how it doesn't really spoil it. When the host of tcm said this movie has just been pulled off the shelf and had never been aired before I had to look it up, when I saw the mostly empty page here I had to post a review. I'm glad someone plucked this one off the shelf. Like the host said it's not an amazing movie, but it's definitely one more people should see.
