Frank Sinatra stars as Tony Manetta, a widower living well beyond his means, in Miami where hes raising his young son, Alvin (Eddie Hodges). With a limited understanding of the word responsibility, Tony, finding himself in debt and with his back against the wall, decides to reach out to his older brother, Mario, for yet another in a string of loans, fabricating that the money is needed for Alvin who has taken ill. The plot takes full-swing when Mario and his wife decide to pay Tony and Alvin a visit. In the tradition of Its A Wonderful Life, Mr. Deeds Goes To Washington, Pocket Full of Miracles, director Frank Capra weaves a comic tale filled with heart, laughs and love and introduced the classic standard High Hopes to the world.
