He finds a makeshift home with a big-hearted GI, while the mother he does not remember searches desperately for him.

This milestone of filmmaking won two 1948 Academy Awards: Best Motion Picture Story and a special award to Ivan Jandl for his haunting performance as the lost child."--Container

"Early in this brisk dramedy, a jaded newsman laments that some reporters furnish the manure while some grow the flowers. Editor Joe Randall's newspaper is suddenly in the manure biz.

Aline MacMahon's (Dragon Seed, All the Way Home) expressive face reflects the joys and sorrows of devotion in Side Streets, the tale of a shopkeeper (MacMahon) who marries an easygoing sailor (Paul Kelly) for love. But he's marrying for a meal ticket. Stranger in Town stars Charles 'Chic' Sale, the vaudeville comic renowned for playing cantankerous old-timers decades his senior. Here, he's small-town coot Ulysses Crickle, whose tiny grocery faces ruin when a national chain opens a store right across the street. Look out, corporate fat cats: you don't know what competition is until you take on Ulysses Crickle!"--Container
