Movie Info

Hoosier Schoolboy was the second 1937 release of the newly reorganized Monogram Pictures. Mickey Rooney (borrowed from MGM) has the title role in this easygoing rural drama. Young Rooney idolizes his father, a shell-shocked war veteran who has lately turned to drink. The boy must protect his dad against the recriminations of the townsfolk. Rooney has ample opportunity for the emotional scenes he did so well, before he and his father are rescued from a life of poverty by an understanding schoolteacher. Hoosier Schoolboy was based on a novel by Edward Eggleston, at one time a very popular chronicler of American small-town life.
