This is a saccharine screen version of the Thomas Hughes classic, emphasizing the battles between new boy at school Davies and the brute he must contend with, Forrest. A new headmaster is also introduced, portrayed by Newton. He deals with problems in a manner the boys are not very

accustomed to; that is, he treats his students as human beings instead of untrained animals. Davies is almost too likable in the lead role, while his counterpart is likewise almost too nasty, but this helps to play up the heavy dramatics. This film is a remake of TOM BROWN'S SCHOOL DAYS (1940).
