A new schoolteacher arrives in the town of Ainsley, which is in the middle of a milk strike that has caused heated feelings among the local dairy farmers. One of the teacher's new students is a cynical boy who is prone to fighting. When she takes an interest in him, she learns that he lives with his father, a shell-shocked war veteran. Meanwhile, the son of the hard-line dairy owner is pursuing her, despite her resistance to his attentions. Written by Snow Leopard

Not terrible but it is just too short and needed to be fleshed out more.
22 July 2014 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

"Hoosier Schoolboy" is a film most notable because it stars Mickey Rooney. Although he would soon gain great fame with MGM, this was made for the ultra-low budget studio Monogram--and it shows. While the film has some very nice elements, it also seems incredibly rushed and falls a bit flat. Even for a B-movie, it's a bit underwhelming--though some of the acting is nice.

The film has several different plots--and they all center on some crappy little town. One plot involves the owner of the dairy. He's a real jerk and has decided to put the local dairy farmers out of business-- even if it costs him a fortune. Eventually his son joins forces with the farmers, as he's come to realize that his father is a jerk. There's also the new school teacher who has taken a real liking to a kid that others on the faculty think is bad news (Rooney) and she reforms him. And, then there's the father of the boy--a drunk who won the Medal of Honor. And, there's the bratty son of the dairy owner...in fact, there are SO many plots that they never really seem resolved when the movie very abruptly ends. It's a shame, as if the film was about 30 minutes longer, this all could have worked out well--as is, the film, at the end, was frustrating despite having a lot of good story elements and acting.
