Boys Town

Spencer Tracy nabbed his second consecutive Best Actor Oscar for his performance as Father Flanagan, a Catholic priest who founds a community for wayward youths. Flanagan believes that bad environments create juvenile delinquents and adult criminals and sets about redeeming troubled teens through education and responsibility. Mickey Rooney plays troublemaker Whitey Marsh, the toughest kid in the bunch.
