No Greater Glory DVD 1934 Frankie Darro Black and White
Stars of No Greater Glory: Frankie Darro, George P. Breakston, Jimmy Butler
Adapted from The Paul Street Boys, an autobiographical novel by Ferenc Molnar, No Greater Glory is an unusually sensitive evocation of the pain of youth. Frail Nemecsek, a lonely boy who yearns to belong, worships Boka, the self-sufficient, charismatic leader of a well-organized gang, decked out in uniforms and sporting their own flag. The perennial outsider sees his chance to win a respected place in Butler’s army when their flag is stolen and war breaks out with another gang.
Jimmy Butler plays Boka, a small child who is the only Private in his gang, because he’s so small, yet he’s the only one will to risk his neck for the greater good of the gang. George P. Breakston, Jackie Searl and Frankie Darro also add nice work with future Dick Tracy (Ralph Morgan) having a small role. Another major plus was the cinematography, which looked extremely well and so focused that you couldn’t help but feel as if you were there during all the action. The ending, which goes for emotions, remains one of the most powerful scenes from this era.
