Boys' Reformatory Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

Boys' Reformatory was the third of [[Performer~P17067~Frankie Darro~frankiedarro]]'s tough-guy vehicles for Monogram Pictures. [[Performer~P17067~Darro~frankiedarro]] is cast as orphaned teenager Tommy, who to avoid breaking his foster-mother's heart takes the rap for a crime committed by his foster-brother Eddie ([[Performer~P13938~Frank Coghlan Jr.~frankcoghlanjr]]). Sent to a dismal reform school, Tommy finds a friend in the form of school doctor Owens ([[Performer~P117136~Grant Withers~grantwithers]]), a tireless crusader for improved reformatory conditions. With Owens' help, Tommy is able to take a "vacation" from the institution and round up the crooks responsible for leading Eddie astray. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
