(1948) Inspirational tale of a Catholic priest (Patrick O’Brien) in 1905 St. Louis who starts a residence for homeless boys, then struggles to find adequate funding as his efforts expand in rehabilitating a growing number of youths, one of whom (Darryl Hickman) proves incorrigible. Directed by Ted Tetzlaff, the subject is certainly worthy and the treatment sincere, but the result suffers from a bland sentimentality which wears thin today.  (A-I -- general patronage) (Part of a series the same day of films featuring priest characters, including 1939’s Full Confession, 12:30-1:45 p.m.; 1953’s I Confess, 3:30-5:15 p.m.; and 1960’s The Angel Wore Red, 6:15-8 p.m.) TCM (cable)
