MGM's newest child star Jackie "Butch" Jenkins--lisp and all--is the title character in this overlong family drama. The setting is a postwar army camp, where returning GIs live in Quonsets with their families. Jenkins' mother dies, whereupon his soldier dad becomes an alcoholic. Both father and son are saved by the realization that life goes on. It was MGM's notion to reteam three of the stars from the previous season's Our Vines Have Tender Grapes (Butch Jenkins, James Craig and Frances Gifford) in hopes of lightning striking twice at the box office; no such strike occurred. Little Mr. Jim was adapted from the Tommy Wadelton novel Army Brat.
