Before he became the king of bottom-barrel B pictures, director William Beaudine turned out several silent films of sensitivity and accomplishment. In Boy of Mine, Ben Alexander, a popular juvenile star who also appeared in Beaudine's Penrod and Sam, plays the son of wealthy, unfeeling banker Henry B. Walthall. Unable to meet the banker's impossibly stricts standards, Alexander and his mother leave home. The boy befriends kindly doctor Rockliffe Fellowes, who helps to humanize the intractable Walthall. Like Penrod and Sam, Boy of Mine was based on a story by Booth Tarkington. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
