A Kid for Two Farthings (1956)

David Kossoff as "Avrom Kandinsky"

Joe (Jonathan Ashmore) is a young boy who lives with his mother, Joanna (Celia Johnson), in working-class London. The two reside above the tailor shop of Mr. Kandinsky (David Kossoff), who likes to tell Joe stories. When Kandinsky informs Joe that a unicorn can grant wishes, the hopeful lad ends up buying a baby goat with one tiny horn, believing it to be a real unicorn. Undaunted by his rough surroundings, Joe sets about to prove that wishes can come true.
