Johnny Trouble (1957)

In this gentle, non-melodramatic drama, an elderly, wealthy widow will not leave her apartment even after her building is slated to be converted into a dormitory by the university that purchased it. She refuses to leave because she is convinced that her son, who disappeared 27 years before after being expelled from the college, will comeback. The university lets her stay and she becomes the house “Nana” for the students that live there. When an ex-Marine moves in, the woman is sure that he is her grandson as he has the same name as her son.
