Storyline

Set in a Los Angeles reformatory, behind locked gates and barbed-wire fences, for wayward girls and unwed-mothers, the inmates, two weeks from Chtistmas Day, conceal a newly-born baby boy from the institute's house-mothers and care-taker guards to keep it from going to an adoptive agency. They steal linens and bed-sheets to make diapers, and take shifts to care for the baby and all begin to make Christmas presents, from odds-and-ends and personal items to give the baby they name Buddy a Christmas they have never had.

I used to catch this film fairly regularly back in the days when local TV stations ran the Late Show, the Late-Late Show, the Omigosh Are YOU Still Up? Show etc. instead of infomercials (**sigh...**) "Gone With the Wind" it's not, but I found it surprisingly memorable anyway and would like to find it on VHS or DVD someday. a lot of the movies I saw in those days--well, I don't remember having seen them until I see them again on AMC or Turner, or on the bargain-basement video rack at Wal-Mart. for some reason, "The Green-Eyed Blonde" stuck (I can even remember the downbeat theme music!) I've never seen it in any company's video catalog, though... (***SIGH...***)
