A tribute to
Fr Peter Dunne
Df St Louis , who in 1905 began a home for underprivileged newsboys. Disturbed by the poor health and hazardous life of these boys, Dunne opens up a disused house with the support of his archbishop and local businessmen.
Pat O'Brien plays the irrepressible priest who, by his openness and simple charm, kept his home going against the odds and won a decent life for boys otherwise condemned to the streets.
Screenplay by MARTIN RACKIN and FRANK Davis from a story by WILLIAM RANKIN Produced by PHIL L. RYAN Directed by TED TETZLAFF
