Sentimental Slop
14 August 2017 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

Tomorrow's Youth from Monogram Pictures has little Dickie Moore being shuttled back and forth between separated parents John Miljan and Martha Sleeper. Sleeper caught Miljan with Gloria Shea and the divorce proceedings were on.

Miljan "engaged" a tutor for little master Moore in the person of the familiar fuss budget Franklin Pangborn. Pangborn played what was gay stereotypes back in the day. But it was only in this film that Moore out rightly calls him "a big sissy". It was business as usual for Pangborn who just smothers this kid with this regimented schedule of nap times.

The ending which takes place in divorce court is just plain sentimental slop. This truly does not hold up well and LGBT people will be really offended with what Franklin Pangborn plays here.
