Norman Taurog - Boys Town (1938)
Spencer Tracy won an Oscar for his portrayal of Father Flanagan, who opens Boys Town and dedicates himself to helping juvenile delinquents go straight. Mickey Rooney plays one of the tougher kids, figuring out early on that Flanagan is nobody\'s fool. Warmhearted and inspiring, the film\'s inevitable sentimentality is nicely cut by Tracy\'s performance and a smart script by Eleanore Griffin and Dore Schary (who also won Oscars).
