Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this movie depicts young boys acting out at a boarding school. They set booby traps for faculty members, sneak cigarettes when left alone, and use some foul language. The headmaster of the school has little patience with the boys and resorts to heavy paddlings. He even puts some of the worst troublemakers into a solitary confinement cell. A significant theft of school funds occurs, and one of the boys is the culprit. When the boys called upon by the school prefect to sing any songs they might know, a few contain toilet-based or sexual lyrics.
