Dividing Bar

John Ford at 20th Century Fox. Sweet plot and workmanlike directing. The relationship between man and boy is a bit underdeveloped: we see that they are close, but not how or why they become so. Bertrand disparu, from 1986, is a better treatment of the misfit-man-befriends-runaway-boy theme.

Dividing Bar

A sentimental tale of two hobos - one a man, the other a young boy - who become inseparable. The adult hobo, Bim (Buck Jones), repeatedly insists on doing the right thing, but discovers each time that no good deed ever goes unpunished by the 'virtuous' townsfolk. Of course, eventually the townsfolk see the error of their ways, but not before nearly lynching poor Bim. The relation between Bim and Bill (Georgie Stone) is very nicely portrayed.
