    THIS MOVIE PROVES THAT NO MATTER HOW RICH OR POOR YOU MAY THINK YOU ARE, HAVE TIME FOR GOD’S GREATEST GIFT, HERE ON EARTH, YOUR, YOUR CHILDREN.
    FOR IT TO BE PRODUCED AND SHOWN IN THE ’30’S, IT HITS TOO CLOSE TO WHAT’S HAPPENING, HERE, IN 2008!!!!!

    SAVE GOD’S GIFTS TO MANKIND……

    This ’30’s period movie was clearly made with a social message, but it is as good a message today as it was then. There are cliches and stereotypes aplenty, but WHAT BECOMES OF THE CHILDREN shows how the neglect and selfishness of people in “good” families can damage their children’s lives. I recommend it.

    It’s a very relevent movie even to our materialistic society nowadays. It’s very fortunate that every thing ended on a happy note but does it in real life? The film reminds me of a poem I wrote some years back on Divorce. Here goes:
    Divorce;
    Shattering lives,
    Of innocent children;
    Adults , devoid of love,
    Decided to severe marriage vows,
    Ignoring the rights of their offsprings,
    Of their warm cozy nest;
    Forsaking parental responsibility,
    For individual freedom;
    Broken pieces,
    Irreparable!

    WOW as said above you would think this was a modern day movie as a lot of it is so it’s so true to todays modern lifestyle. Great movie, enjoyed it very much.

    According to IMDB, this film was released December 5, 1936. I don’t think it is a coincidence that it was distributed by “Puritan Distributing Company.” It’s pretty laughable, but still better then a lot of movies of today. All in all a decent watch.

    It’s nice to watch the old black and white movies once in a while. They are clean and nothing embarrassing so that if you have children in the room you have to shut it off or cover their ears and eyes. I rather enjoyed the story and was not bored or unamused. They don’t make movies like they did in the old days. This movie had a bit of a surprise ending wherein the young couple was able to pull it off and still come out ahead. Youth on Parole was a very good, well put together movie.
