Audience Reviews for Men of Boys Town
a sequel 3 yrs in the making does not disappoint maybe 'cos everybody from first pic are back-even Spencer Tracy
It's Whitey, Pee Wee, Flip, Mo, Pete and Bohunk. Not quite as sappy as it's predecessor, The Men of Boys Town chronicles the continuing saga of Father Flanagan and his innovative home for troubled youth. Cheesy but sweet. *NOTE: The 'slow motion wrestling' is hilarious!
The Men of Boys Town (1941) -- [7.0] -- Mickey Rooney's character is coming of age and Spencer Tracey's Father Flanagan is doing his best to prevent Boys Town from being shut down due to lack of funds. The story is pretty much the same, but still endearing thanks to solid performances from Tracey and Rooney. Things get surprisingly dark in the sequel. One of the new boys is a murderer, and there's some pretty shocking brutality going on in a certain reform school. Oh, and there's a puppy that doesn't fare too well. It gets a little too saccharine towards the end, but I'm a sucker for stories involving children who rise above circumstance, and Flanagan's story is a genuinely moving one. (Tracey's portraying a real man, and the real Boys Town is still operating today.)
