TOM BROWN OF CULVER (1932)


Starring Ben Alexander, Tom Brown, Andy Devine, Eugene Pallette, Slim Summerville,

Sidney Toler, H.B. Warner, Tyrone Power

Directed by William Wyler



Print: black/white

Runtime: 82 min.

Genre: drama

Print quality: B



William Wyler directed this melodramatic story about a boy who, after growing up in the

shadow of his father, learns the old man wasn't all he claimed to be. Tom Brown (played, as

coincidence would have it, by an actor named Tom Brown) is a boy who has been struggling

to help his mother keep body and soul together ever since the death of his father during

World War I. The elder Brown died in combat when Tom was a baby, but her heroism

earned him a posthumous Congressional Medal of Honor, and in tribute to his father a local

American Legion post presents Tom with a full scholarship to attend the prestigious Culver

Military Academy; while Tom has his doubts about his future as a soldier, he certainly

understands the value of an education and accepts. However, its not until after he's enrolled

at Culver that Tom learns the truth about his father — "Doc" Brown (H.B. Warner) fled in the

midst of battle, exchanging his identification with a dead soldier, and has been living the life

of a coward ever since. Will Tom be able to restore the good name of the Brown family?

Andy Devine, Sidney Toler, Slim Summerville and a young Tyrone Power highlight the

supporting cast.


 


THE SPIRIT OF CULVER (1939)


Starring Jackie Cooper, Freddie Bartholomew, Andy Devine, Henry Hull, Jackie Moran, Tim

Holt

Directed by Joseph Santley



Print: black/white

Runtime: 89 min.

Genre: drama

Print quality: B



In this campus drama, an orphan wins a cadet scholarship to the Culver military academy.

He is a cocky fellow, and is very proud that his late father was a decorated war hero who

died in battle. His arrogance and unwillingness to comply with the academy's strict rules

soon gets him into hot water. Fortunately, the lad's level-headed roommate helps him settle

down and toe the line. Later the young man learns that his dad is still alive and is recovering

from the trauma of battle in a local VA hospital. Time passes and the young man grows up

to be a fine cadet. Meanwhile, his father heals and becomes the courageous hero he once

was.
