Boys Town

Hello everyone! I wanted to share these trailers with you. When I was little, I used to watch these movies and they really meant a lot to me. These movies represent what every boy can be. The true American boy.......who longs to become a man. Boys Town, (the first film) tells the story of Father Flanagan (Spencer Tracey) and his dream to build a home for boys. And Whitey Marsh (Mickey Rooney) a boy who came to him as a 'big shot'...and discovered who he really was. Flanagan became a father to him...and a true friend. In..Men of Boys Town, (the second film) Father Flanagan struggles to make ends meat....and Whitey Marsh finds a little boy in need... and does everything in his power to help him. Stuck in the middle of what is True...and what is Safe....Whitey finds himself in trouble. But, he sticks to what he believes....and discovers that..."the truth will set you free.." These movies represent Courage, Faith, Determination, Truth, Justice, Love, and Strength. And what Father Flanagan stood by and built his life upon.....the belief that..."There is no such thing as a bad boy....."

You can find these films at your local library.

Thank you.
