Hearts of Humanity (1932, B&W): After a burglar kills policeman Tom O'Hara in Sol Bloom's antique store, the Jewish shopkeeper is entrusted with raising the murdered cop's young son. This does not set sit well with Sol's boy Joey - a streetwise troubler on the fast track to a life of crime. In contrast, little Shandy O'Hara proves to be a model addition to the Bloom household, scoring straight-A's in school and putting others before himself. The Irish lad's generosity, however, is exploited by his stepbrother, who steals money from the family cash register and even swipes Shandy's pocketknife.Hearts of Humanity, a heartfelt and beautifully acted independent production, was filmed for $30,000 in six days at Hollywood's Tec-Art Studios on Melrose Avenue. Danish-born star Jean Hersholt was a leading screen actor during the 1920s in such memorable masterworks as The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, Greed, and Don Q - Son of Zorro. After the coming of sound, he brought a dignified presence to suchMGM classics as The Mask of Fu Manchu, Dinner at Eight, and Mark of the Vampire. He is best remembered for his role as Grandfather in Heidi (1937) and for his starring performances in a series of six Dr. Christian films (1939-1941).Starring Jean Hersholt, Claudia Dell, Jackie Searle, J.
