Goofs

Lem takes Vida to the movies on their first date to see a Ronald Colman and Carole Lombard picture, but his dialogue is interrupted (conveniently) before he can name the movie title. In front of the theater the marquis shows the title of the feature, "Altar Bound", along with the two stars names. The movie "Altar Bound" however, appears to be fictional. See more »

When Individuals Mattered
21 June 2001 | by (Saint Charles, MO) – See all my reviews

Follow Me, Boys! is a feel good film with an impressive cast. It's a snapshot of a time when there was a true sense of community that we rarely see today. A time when personal values carried more weight than profits.

The film delivers a powerful message of just how much difference a single person can make by leading through example. I think with today's media glut of flashy superstardom and wealth and narcissism, many us have lost sight of how much force there is in simply being a kind and honest person. I certainly walked away re-evaluating some of my motivations and behaviors. Just how do I affect the people around me on a daily basis?
