Spare the Tod and Slaughter the Child
26 February 2009 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

"An unscrupulous squire plots to have a young woman for his own by framing her fiancé for a crime. The young man heads off to the gold fields of Australia to seek his fortune, while the squire stops any mail from being sent or received by the couple through his hold over the postmaster. The squire even has the young man's best friend imprisoned to prevent the friend from discovering what the squire is doing," according to the DVD sleeve's synopsis.

The best part of this uneven story is savoring master Tod Slaughter as prison warden (or, "Justice of the Peace"). "This jail is my hobby. I regard the prisoners here as my children, naughty children it is true, who have to be punished," Slaughter explains, "It hurts me more than it hurts them." Several others, like Jack Livesey (as Tom Robinson), make the prison scenes interesting. But, young John Singer (as Matthew Joseph) is the film's Achilles' heel - he's a "naughty" child who really doesn't deserve to be Slaughtered.

**** It's Never Too Late to Mend (1937) David MacDonald ~ Tod Slaughter, Jack Livesey, John Singer
