Summary: With Audie's first starring role, he plays an orphaned juvenile delinquent in the setting of Copperas Cove, Texas. The Boys Home is based on the Variety International Boys Home that was actually based in the same town too. This film bridges a chronological and cinematic theme between the release of Boys Town and a more realistic look at dysfunctional youths of the 1950s. Danny Lester (Audie) is definitely a young man somewhat out of control. There seems to be no reason for his violent behavior until it is discovered his step-father blames him for his mother's death. In the end, Danny is found to be innocent of a crime he thinks he committed, killing his mother. He is exonerated of the charges and winds up being an engineering student at Texas A&M.
