13-year-old Ronald Sinclair is a violin prodigy. His records brings in $2000 a week, his concerts sell out, and he's being paid a quarter of a million dollars to appear in a movie. Of course, he has expenses. His stepmother takes 30%, his aunts take another 30% and his agent gets 10%. After paying the government its 30%, he can do whatever he likes with what's left. It's a good thing he has no free time. So he goes on a walk. Along the way he meets some nice people like pleasant hood Big Boy Williams and courting couple Lynne Roberts and William Bakewell. No one knows who he is and his leeches.... I mean his concerned family thinks he has been kidnapped.

It's a fine little comedy directed by Nick Barrows, and Master Sinclair gives an amiable performance, while the professionals around him -- including Hedda Hopper, Franklin Pangborn (as a hotel clerk, naturally) and Grady Sutton offer their support.

Sinclair was born in New Zealand in 1924. appeared in about ten movies through 1942. He served in the US Army during the Second World War. After that, he stayed in the movies as an editor, working through 1992, specializing in dialogue editing. He was married to one woman from 1961 through his death in 1992, proving that some people's lives have nice second acts.
