Square Shoulders and The Big Town
SQUARE SHOULDERS starring Louis Wolheim and Junior Coghlan. Tad is a young boy who wants to go to military school so he can grow up to be a great soldier, just like his dad. Little does he suspect that Slag (Wolheim), a bum and a thief, is actually his father. Slag, not wanting to reveal his true identity and thus destroy Tad's belief in his father as a war hero, robs a factory for the money to send his son to a fancy military academy. I order to stay close to Tad, he takes on a job at the academy's stable. This is a truly wonderful film with elements of comedy and drama. It's a moving tribute to the love between father and son. This film is presented with the original music and effects score as it was when released in 1929.
