This film, adapted from William Saroyan's story, stars Mickey Rooney as a young teen who takes a job to help support his family while his older brother is abroad fighting in World War II. The job entails delivering telegrams to soldiers' families informing them their loved ones have been killed in the line of duty. The sentimental and life-affirming slice of Americana that examines the WWII homefront co-stars Donna Reed, Van Johnson, Frank Morgan, and features a cameo appearance from Robert Mitchum. 117 min. Standard; Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital mono.
