D: Irving Pichel. Jimmy Durante, Terry Moore, Tom Drake, Queenie Smith, Frank Orth, Jimmy Conlin, Chick Chandler. Agreeable comedy-fantasy about a trained squirrel who finds a cache of money and gives it to impoverished vaudevillian Durante and his family. Durante is at his best, but story runs out of steam before it's through. Produced by George Pal; director Pichel appears in a brief bit. Later colorized and retitled A CHRISTMAS WISH.
