The TV drama anthology Kraft Television Theatre celebrated its tenth year on the air with an original drama written by Anthony Spinner. Tommy Sands plays Vito Serrano, a teenager living in Italy with his grandparents. Though he regards himself as an orphan, Vito still has a father -- if you can call gangster boss Frankie Serrano (Victor Jory) a father. Despite his unsavory roots, Vito has a strong desire to go to the U.S., where his father resides. He may get his wish when Frankie makes a sentimental journey to the Italian village of his youth, where he fills his son's head with stories about his "glamorous" American lifestyle. Somehow or other, the teleplay manages to find time for two songs performed by Tommy Sands, who'd already made his Kraft Television Theatre mark as the Elvis-like hero of the series' January 30, 1957 presentation "The Singin' Idol."
