Dickie Moore, Divorce Less
15 May 2011 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

Cute seven-year-old Dickie Moore (as Thomas "Junior" Hall) is with his mother Martha Sleeper (as Ellen Blair Hall) when she catches husband and father John Miljan (as Thomas "Tom" Hall) leaving his New York law office with a blonde affair. The couple is granted a court separation, with young Dickie scheduled to spend six months with Ms. Sleeper, followed by six months with Mr. Miljan. This is a trial custody arrangement, as the couple prepares for divorce. Mother and teacher are upset when the little Moore has to go live in father Miljan's mansion, but they follow court orders...

Unfortunately, there is no scene showing Dickie Moore unpacking his goldfish...

While with his father, young Moore must deal with baths administered by "big sissy" Franklin Pangborn (as Thornton), who is engaged as his tutor. Apparently, sweet and motherly Jane Darwell (as Mary O'Brien) doesn't do baths. Meanwhile, Gloria Shea (as Jane Holsworth), the blonde who dated dad in the opening scene, tries to play "mama" to Moore. She wants to be a wealthy socialite, but Moore wants his real mother and father to get back together. "Tomorrow's Youth" depends on stable marriages. It looks like production code made sure the seventh commandment was followed.
