The sentimental Hungarian drama Tommy owes quite a bit to Chaplin's The Kid. The principal character is an orphan boy, who spends the first few reels suffering under the tyranny of an evil grandfather. Tommy is rescued by a spinster aunt who, after landing a husband, is at last able to adopt the child. The film's most heart-wrenching scene finds young Tommy mourning by his mother's grave on a cold and windy night. Nodding off, he dreams he is reunited with her in Heaven -- which, considering the weather and his flimsy clothing, may very well happen. Tommy boasts excellent performances from two astonishingly gifted juvenile performers, Gizy Peczy and Klari Adam.
