As portrayed by Tom Brown and Culver
30 September 2002 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Interestingly conceived but erratically realized mixture of melodrama and documentary as the American Legion pays for a scholarship to Culver Military Academy for Tom Brown in honor of his Medal-of-Honor-winning father. The script is a little too neat and episodic, however, and apparently the young actors were not up to Wyler's 90 takes to get the scenes right, so some of the scenes are a bit misjudged. Watch for an incredibly young Tyrone Power Jr. in his screen debut and an uncredited and very funny cameo by Eugene Palette.
