It’s about a father and his son and it takes place maybe between the two wars but I’m not sure. In the beginning they have an orange plantation in Europe but it freezes and they lose everything so they have so they go to the USA on a boat. The boat sinks and the boy is alive but doesn’t know where his father is. He lives by himself in New York, meets a girl and they become friends. He still doesn’t know if his father is alive or not and decides to become actor so that when he’ll be famous, his father will see him.
It ends in a cinema years later, it’s a screening of a movie of the son, the father is in the theater and cries because he recognizes his son on the screen. Then the reunite and it’s very emotional.
I’ve seen it as a kid and loved it, I’ve been looking for it for years ! Thank you very much !
