Men of Boys Town ★★½ 1941

Sequel to 1938's “Boys Town” has the same sentimentality, even more if that's possible. Father Flanagan's reformatory faces closure, while the kids reach out to an embittered new inmate. Worth seeing for the ace cast reprising their roles. 106m/ B VHS . Spencer Tracy, Mickey Rooney, Darryl Hickman, Henry O'Neill, Lee J. Cobb, Sidney Miller; D: Norman Taurog.
