Can anyone please settle an argument and name this US TV movie which I think appeared on UK TV in the 1980’s? Synopsis – 18 year old man (Jimmy?) returns home after death of his mother (father died previously) and finds his 2 younger sisters (One called Suzy?) and younger brother being looked after by relatives. He applies for custody and has to prove he can cope. He takes a job writing music for commercials/jingles. He faces challenges eg The younger sister with curly hair is caught shoplifting but the film ends with them all celebrating Christmas together. It was supposedly loosely based on the producer or directors real life. We can’t find this movie and can’t remember it’s title and its causing lots of good natured sibling teasing and debates. Can anyone settle the argument? Thanks
