THE HOOSIER SCHOOL MASTER (Theatrical Release USA 1935)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.0|5.0 Starsìììì

The Hoosier School Master—simple, innocent storyline—serves up an average film that, despite its age, entertains and introduces the film academic to actor George “Gabby” Hayes.


A school master uses every psychological skill he possesses to engage rough and tough students to the value of education.
