On Borrowed Time is in fact the movie that is in question.  I've looked now and again for the exact Title of the film for 30 years and here on the net I've finally stumbled upon it.  The description and cast are exactly as I remember.  I was 10 years old the one time I saw this film (1/2 way through).  It was a Saturday TV matinee and for reasons I can't remember my family had to leave as I was watching.  Now that I know the title maybe I can see it again (decades later).

I love this movie and would love to see it again and again. I have never been able to shake it nor wanted to.  It has impacted me. Wish movies were  still made like this .

Charlotte,  this  movie "On Borrowed Time" was indeed a movie I saw it as a child and cried and every time my mother would remind me of the movie I would cry.  I loved Pud and Barrymore.  I have been searching for the title of this movie for years.  I always would look up 'Death up a Tree" but now I know the title.  Thank you


I would love a copy and to see again

I can answer questions on movies from the 40s through the 60s. Information about the stars, and movies made in those years, and many made before that time. I have seen many silents and the first sound movies. I was a total movie buff from 1943 to 1965.


I literally spent my growing up years in movie theaters.
I think I saw every musical made, and many dramas, comedies etc.
Huge Betty Grable,and Gene Kelly fan!
