This was definitely one of the most entertaining films that I've seen all year. Bobby Driscoll plays a boy who witnesses a murder committed by his upstairs neighbors as he tried to get some sleep on the fire escape.
Unfortunately, his habit of telling tall tales make it so his parents don't believe him. He goes to the police station bu they don't believe him either and they bring him back home to his parents. His mother marches him upstairs to make him apologize to the neighbors for spreading mean stories about them. Bad idea.
His father works nights and his mother has to leave one night to help her sick sister. This leaves poor Bobby, home alone, ripe for the picking by the murderers.
I loved the abandoned buildings, the street scenes, the Brooklyn accents. This movie didn't waste a moment - it is all suspense and good times. I can't recommend this more highly.
