Little Miss Marker

1980 PG

Bookie Sorrowful Jones (Walter Matthau) grudgingly accepts a 6-year-old girl (Sara Stimson) as collateral for a debt. The sprightly youngster soon has a positive effect on her curmudgeonly guardian, adding a little sunshine to his life. What's more, the little lass decides to play matchmaker for sorrowful and lovely widow Amanda (Julie Andrews) in this adaptation of Damon Runyon's classic short story. Tony Curtis costars as the heavy.
