One of Mickey Rooneys best07 February 2012

A great mpvie for all the family to watch. Mickey Rooney as a little criminal and the ever great Spencer Tracy as Father Flanagan, who is helping those little criminal boys to become good boys. The movie tells us the real story about Boystown. Very moving picture, even today.
