Attempt to market O'Brien as a teen
This B-movie from Columbia is obviously an attempt to create a teen "star" of Margaret O'Brien, Oscar-winning child actress of several MGM classics from the 40s. It plays like a glorified 50s sitcom episode, complete with Elinor "Princess" Donahue in a supporting role. (Bizzarely, the story is by Herman "Winds of War" Wouk!)

The production is pedestrian, and not surprisingly, ended the feature teen-actress career of O'Brien, who has gone on to numerous TV guest spots throughout the years, and a current and unfortunate alliance with some performer named Randal Malone. (Check out her IMDb listing for further details.)

One would hope that some casting agent or producer out there, could find her a great episode of "ER" or "Law & Order," or some such series. I've purposely avoided her last two Z movies, as she deserves considerably better than the direct-to-video, no-budget "Dead Season."
