    This is the sadest mother-son movie you can ever imagine. Have seen this movie so many times, cannot remember the number. I\'m a mother who has lost both a son (at 3 yrs.) and a daughter (at 54 who died 2 mos. ago). I cry but still love it!!

    One of the best movies I have ever seen. If you like this one you will also love \"Back Street\" with Susan Hayward. I loved both of these movies.
