Boys Town Trailer (1938)

Trailer for the 1938 classic Boys Town.

Boys Town is a film classic based on the true story of Father Flanagan, a Catholic priest who established a community in Omaha, Nebraska for troubled youths. The film stars Spencer Tracy, who won an Oscar for his portrayal of Father Flanagan, and Mickey Rooney as the young Whitey Marsh. The priest's challenge is to tame Whitey, the incorrigible kid brother of a jailed gangster. When Whitey first arrives at the orphanage, he turns it upside down with his street-tough antics. However, grim reality sets in when he loses a boxing match, sees his best pal injured in a car accident, and has extended contact with his brother's low-life criminal friends. In the end, Whitey falls in line with the program and is living proof of Father Flanagan's belief that there are no bad boys -- just bad environments.
