Once Upon a Time 1944

Academy Award winner Cary Grant (Honorary Award, 1970) is at his suave best as slick showman Jerry Flynn, a Broadway producer anxious to recapture the magic and reclaim the crowds after a set of costly flops. Outside his theater one night, Flynn meets a young boy who just might save the day. Inside a small box the boy shows Flynn his pride and joy: a caterpillar named Curly that dances to "Yes Sir, That's My Baby." Word quickly spreads about the amazingly talented hoofer, and the caterpillar becomes a symbol of hope for wartime America. Soon, offers are pouring in to capitalize on this sensational insect. Will Curly go Hollywood or will Flynn's get-rich-quicker quick scheme go to the bugs? Once Upon a Time is a furry fairy tale that's fun for the whole family.
