“Jack-A-Boy” is the tale of a young boy who, quite unexpectedly, brings warmth and love into the lives of his lonely neighbors. When Jack and his family move into a new apartment in the French Quarter of New Orleans, the older tenants, though first perturbed about having a young boy as a neighbor, are beguiled at Jack’s overtures to escape their lonely retreats and rekindle their interest in life. Produced by Carl Colby. Based on the short story by Willa Cather.
