Katherine Chandler lives in an apartment house that has been purchased by the local college for a boy's dormitory. She refuses to vacate, certain that her son, who was a wild boy and disappeared after being expelled from the school twenty-sever years ago, will return. The college lets her remain as an unofficial dorm-mother to the students who treat her as their collective grandmother. She becomes convinced that one of the wild students, Johnny, is her grandson since he bears the same name as her lost son. Her attentions reform him, and he is persuaded to marry his pregnant girlfriend, Julie Horton. Katherine awaits the arrival of Johnny's parents, certain that his father is her missing son.Written by

When Johnny (Stuart Whitman) is telling his story about killing his friend. He states "I'll tell you a bedtime story of a brave Marine who killed a man. His best friend. Oh I was a good soldier."
A Marine would never ever refer to himself as a soldier. They are Marines. And they always call themselves, their friends and anyone else who's ever been in the Corps -MARINES!. Never soldiers. See more »
Sentimental tale of an elderly woman awaiting a reunion with her long-lost "bad" son. Sadly, this was Ethel Barrymore's last film. And, again, sadly, the plot (based on Ben Ames Williams' short story) was handled exquisitely in the forgotten 1943 version entitled "Someone to Remember". This uninspired re-make has its moments, and Barrymore is, as always, splendid, but Stuart Whitman and the supporting cast can't hold a candle to the definitive, original movie. Seek out "Someone to Remember" and let this weak re-do be forgotten.
