My grandfathers tavern is the very first thing on the screen. It was callled Shea's Tavern. The camera also goes into the upstairs area later in the movie as well. The tavern was located on the near west side of Indianapolis. At the end of the movie it says "Filmed entirely in Plainfield Indiana". That isn't entirely true.
Please release this film

I spent a year in IBS in the 70's. I would love to watch this movie as I would remember the buildings I am sure. Anyone know where you can get a copy?

I worked at the Indiana Boy's School from 1980 to 1997. I had the opportunity to view this movie twice while working there both times using the orginal copy given to the Boy's School upon it's release. It always was fun to remember the movie scenes when I would be in one of the buildings especially the horse barn and cottages and Administration Building. One of my supervisors mother had a very brief part in the movie. I would love to see the movie again. Almost every scene in the move was really how the Boy's school operated in the era.

As a kid we watched the big shinny cars roll into our neighborhood for the filming. Several shots were made of my old neighborhood and people I knew, including an older brother as I remember.
i thought the movie for the 50's waas very well in the acting dept. would recommend it highly
A Lost Classic
- Joseph Les Phillips
Johnny Holiday with William Bendix and Stanley Clements is one of those films that was designed to keep youth in the 1950's from becoming deliquents. Set in an Indiana correctional school for boys, it tells the tale of Johnny Holiday, a boy who gets in trouble and is sent there hopefully for rehabilitation.William Bendix plays the compassionate, fairminded correction officer who hopes to put Johnny on the straight and narrow after his release. However, the fly in the ointment is Stanley Clements character, who sees in Johnny a protege he can mold and use for his own criminal devices. One of which is turning him against Bendix's good angel sitting on his shoulder to Clements bad one.Things finally come to a head when Clements gets hold of a gun and in an escape attempt shoots Bendix, forcing the emotionally torn Johnny to finally choose between good or bad as his path in life.
