If you have not seen Boys Town yet you should watch it. It was well made and acted especially by Boy Actors.

I thought the sequel, "Men of Boys Town" was much better and more interesting.

Very dated direction, overly sentimental, predictable plot. I found that Bobs Watson is the only real interest. It must have been a weak year in the Oscar race... a sign of the times perhaps.
