Let Him Steal Your Heart.

Mickey Rooney plays a weary old thief who befriends a young child.
Home for Christmas is a 1990 Canadian made film about a young girl (Chantellese Kent) who wants a grandfather for Christmas. She chooses an elderly, homeless ex-con (Mickey Rooney) as her pseudo-grandfather and he teaches her - and her family -
the true meaning of Christmas.
Somewhat predictable.. but has a good plot twist about half way through that keeps it interesting.
A solid, low-key performance by Mickey Rooney as the seemingly broken down homeless man saves this one from drowning in it's own mushiness.
