Film name please - B&W film from 30s or 40s. Couple go off to work - believe touring in some form of entertainment business, and leave there little girl approx 4/5 years old at a children's home. Tearjerking - scene of her playing outside in the rain, on own, in the outside playground. She becomes very ill; parents called to come back to see her. She in a ward, where she in a "metal capsule", believe they call an iron lung? So sad - wondering if she will leve or not. Afraid cant remember if she does or not.
Trying to remember name of parent actors - wondered if mum eg Greer Garson, Irene Dunn, Myrna Loy....then even thought might even be Betty Grable. Tried going through much of these actresses list of films, but nothing rings a bell, but films in those days didnt always give much away! Havent seen the film since small in the 1970s, I dont think - so would love to again. Another similar tear jerker was Penny Serenade - so if liked that, would like this one.
