Some 25 years before his "discovery" in In Cold Blood, 9-year-old Bobby (later Robert) Blake made his feature-film starring debut in MGM's Mokey. When his widowed father Herb (Dan Dailey Jr.) remarries, little Mokey Delano (Blake) has a lot of trouble getting accustomed to his stepmother Anthea (Donna Reed). Though Andrea is gentle and loving, Mokey resents her presence, and does everything he can to make her life miserable. Only when he's on the verge of being packed off to reform school does Mokey realize how wrong he's been. A rare directorial effort by screenwriter Wells Root, Mokey features not only Bobby Blake but two of his "Our Gang" series costars, Cordell Hickman and Billy Thomas, the latter better known as "Buckwheat."
