Storyline

Well-bred young English refugee Freddie Hewlett (Freddie Bartholomew) saves the life of Jimmie Fletcher (Billy Halop), wild boy of the road, in a fight with juvenile gang leader Bushy Thomas (Huntz Hall). Freddie takes Jimmie with him to his uncle's ranch, and the uncle, Ferguson (Joseph Crehan), sees the possibility of turning him into a decent boy and arranges to have him sent with Freddie to the select Pearson Military School. At Pearson, Freddie,of course, gets along splendidly (not to mention swell), while Jimmie incurs the enmity of his classmates. Not even the gift of an airplane, inspired by Jimmie, to the school by Mr. Ferguson shakes their dislike. Jimmie, who loves engines, is overjoyed while Freddie, with a phobia about planes as a result of a bombing incident in England, is frightened. Jimmie, because of an academic weakness that keeps him from entering the aviation class, steals the mid-term exam test. Freddie, of course, reports him. Jimmie, somewhat hacked because ...

Interesting Relic From the Past
23 January 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Found this movie on Youtube and it parallels the 'East Side Kids' type of movie that stars Freddie Bartholomew and Billy Halop. This time, Freddie is an English chap who is still traumatized by the raids in England during WW 2 and is suffering from PTSD (not named but alluded to in his diagnosis and problems). While Billy Halop is a troublemaker in his neighborhood and sent to a military academy in order to 'shape up' and fly right. The two of them actually become fast friends, despite their differences, and later have to deal with the hazing from the other military school cadets. What is interesting to note, that although other 'east side kids' characters are in the movie, they are not those characters. That being said, the actors like Huntz Hall, etc, are actually REALLY bad kids who support Nazis who want to destroy the military school and the US!!! A very typical and routine ending for a very short and quickly done film. However, if you want to see Freddie Bartholomew as an older teen and his acting abilities, it should be seen.
