Ameche is the proprietor of an Iowa drugstore made bitter by the death of his son (Crane) in a naval battle. Carey turns up as the ghost of his father to show Ameche that Crane had enjoyed his life, brief as it was, and that he, Ameche, has also had a pretty good life, with a loving wife

film debut somewhere way back in the support.

Coming Soon
