40 Pounds of Trouble
Another entry in the mischievous but lovable child movie category, this one has a nightclub owner and his singer trying to handle the winsome but troublesome youngster, while thoroughly losing their hearts to the child. Essentially, this is a loose remake of a much better film, the Shirley Temple classic "Little Miss Marker," with hard-hearts softening to the machinations of cherubic child.
