Father Flanagan desperately needs $200,000 to finance the two new wings
of Boys Town, the community's young reformed mayor Whitey lets himself
be adopted on a trial basis by a couple that might help raise the
money, and a new kid, Ted with the broken back and the many ghosts in
the closet, reluctantly enters Boy Town, and it seems like he is never
going to trust humankind again.
Three years after the enormous success of 'Boy Town', director Norman
Taurog and his brilliant cast is at it again, reforming young sinners
and fighting their battle against the inhuman ways children were
treated in reform schools. Father Flanagan preaches an anti-punishment
policy way ahead of its time: "There is no redemption in a lash", he
It is Whitey, this time around, that gets to say the immortal words,
"There's no such thing as a bad boy", and adds: "... someone told me
once". And again Mickey Rooney is the center of attention here, I was
once more amazed at this young actor's ease, the complete confidence
that he exudes plus the vulnerability. Never once does he come across
as too cocky, he is just always quite right, which is an art. Rooney
was a brilliant, intuitive player, and it is about time someone gave
him credit for it.
The rest of the acting is not quite on that level. Spencer Tracy as
Father Flanagan plays the easy part here, sufficing to smile warmly and
speak heatedly, but he is nice to be in a room with.
As always, modern viewers cringe at the angelic choirs that accompany
the miracles that make all the pieces fit together, and they must have
sounded grating even in 1941. But, beggars can't be choosers, and I
like this second round of Boys Town almost as much as the first.
