Description
Today they grow up lawless and on the streets. Tomorrow they're on Death Row. Father Edward Flanagan vows to break the cycle, putting his life where his faith is and starting a boys' home that becomes a model of hope.

Spencer Tracy brings shinning inner strength to Flanagan in a performance that made him the first to win consecutive Best Actor Academy Awards® (Tom Hanks later matched that feat.) "There is no bad boy," Flanagan insists. But brash troublemaker Whitey Marsh (Mickey Rooney) puts the credo to the test. Nominated for five Academy Awards® including Best Picture, this compelling movie earned a Best Original Story Oscar®. And the Oscar® Tracy donated to Boys Town (the Academy provided him with another) remains on display there today.

I watched it with my family. The movie has many memorable and lovable characters. It was an amazing story, but perhaps a little sad/intense for younger children.

    Comments about this product:

    With Spencer Tracy and Mickey Rooney in it..you don't need to say much about the movie. This movie tugs at the heart strings. You cheer for the triumps and shed a tear of two too. I've watched it many times over the years on television and with this DVD I can watch it over and over whenever I want to.
