Movie Info

In a small town on the California coast, Charley Martin (J. Carrol Naish) can barely make ends meet and is shunned as the father of a thief. His son Benny joined the army after one too many scrapes with the law, and only Charley and Benny's fiancée, Lolita Sierra (Dorothy Lamour), have anything good to say about the boy. When they receive word that Benny is to receive the Congressional Medal of Honor, the opportunistic townspeople pretend that the Martins are cherished, eminent citizens.

Critic Reviews for A Medal for Benny

All Critics (1) | Fresh (1)

  • By today's standards, this small-town melodrama about hypocrisy, based on John Steinbeck's writing, is sentimental, but it made an impression when originally made.
