Rated 5 out of 5 by newsguy A Very Entertaining and Historic movie
This movie, which has been colorized, is the story of Lemuel Siddons, the first reccipient of the Boy Scouts Silver Beaver Award. This is a great father-son story, love story, and small town story. The story follows a man who decides to stay and live in a small town he is passing through, and eventually starts, and leads the first Boy Scouts troop in the city, being a scout leader for 30 years.
If you come from a small town, or grew up as a Boy Scout, you will probably like this movie. If you appreciate the Andy Griffith Show, you will love this movie.

This is a good family movie- like the ones they used to make. Good values, good acting!
Rated 4 out of 5 by ClassicsConnoisseur Good Family Film
This film could be viewed by all audiences. I would say it's rate G as it's a simple story of a man who settles down in a small town, becomes a scout master, gets married, and adopts a wayward boy. There is no bad language or scenes that small children could not see. Very refreshing!

Rated 5 out of 5 by vnut What dedication! Lem Siddons should be an inspiration to all of us. He had great compassion for his boys and DID SOMETHING about it. WE SHOULD, TOO. He had good humor, and patience, and conviction. Fred MacMurray was a great casting fit. Young Kurt Russel was very good as a "bad boy" and then as a wonderful, grateful boy. I really liked the special feature "Looking back with Lem's boys".
Rated 4 out of 5 by OldiesBGoodies A little slow, but a good old movie about Boy Scouts.
