Dinky 1935
The film begins with Dinky (Jackie Cooper) enrolled in a military school. Unlike many of the kids there, Dinky is a really nice kid--with no a sign of snobbery despite this being an elite school. Dinky is such a stand up guy that he's befriended the kids in the orphanage next door and looks after them as best he can.
It's good that Dinky is such a well-adjusted and decent kid because he's about to be sorely tested. His mother is unaware that she's been made the 'fall guy' for an unscrupulous boss and when his scheme to defraud the stockholders is discovered, he's gone and she is left holding the bag...and sentenced to prison for fraud. She keeps this from Dinky--telling him she's going to work in Chicago. But, one of the jerky kids at the school discovers her fate and does his best to make Dinky feel unwanted. In response, Dinky moves into the orphanage--after all, the kids there want him!
