“Her Boy’’ a patriotic screen drama which shows how
the war coilies to the hearts of families Helen Morrison, the
mother in “Her Boy,’’ looks at the world’s* great struggle in
the wrong light. Her viewpoint is entirely selfloh. She does
not want her boy to show himself a man, she wants him near
her, She sees the sacrifice, not “as the precious privilege, of
David Morrison is a typical red;blooded American yoiAh
with the fire o'f true patfiotisui burning in his heart. Home
ties are d^’ar, but honor is dearer. The situations and devel
opments in ‘Her Boy” are vitally dramatic and surprising,
bringing Helen to the realization that sei'vlce is greater f.ha«
self. /'Her boy is a' story of intense human appeal, filled
with patriotic devotion.
