Shot on location at Rugby School itself, this is a reverential, if at times rather lacklustre, rendition of Thomas Hughes's famous portrait of public school life. Having just chewed the scenery as Long John Silver in Treasure Island, Robert Newton gives a performance of almost saintly sincerity as Dr Arnold, the headmaster intent on ridding his school of class prejudice and bullying. John Howard Davies (who had suffered at the hands of Newton in David Lean's Oliver Twist) does a nice line in smiling through the tears as Tom Brown, but the film belongs squarely to John Forrest, who, as Flashman, is the epitome of vicious snobbery.
