    When nefarious scammers want to collect reward money for a missing boy, they send in a look-alike orphan. When the missing boy sees his "twin" in the window, he sets about correcting the situation with the help of Penrod's boyhood buddies. What makes this film refreshing to watch is to see an almost equal friendship between a young African-American boy (Vernon) who is the youngest member of the boys' club. In 1938, often blacks were caricatured and there was little of this. This was also evident by showing a true friendship between Vernon's mother and another black maid and also by touching on Vernon's sweet romance with Scarlett which also lent a bit of an upstairs, downstairs dimension. This film is still enjoyable to watch with young children who enjoy watching the antics of these youngsters.
