Tom Brown's Schooldays is a 1951 British drama film, produced by Brian Desmond Hurst, directed by Gordon Parry and starring John Howard Davies, Robert Newton and James Hayter.[1] It is based on the 1857 novel of the same name by Thomas Hughes.[2] For this version, Rugby School was used as a filming location.[3]


Critical reception

"Isn't quite as good as the 1940 Hollywood adaptation," thought Allmovie;[2] whereas The New York Times found it "superior in every way to the one made in Hollywood some years back. The quaint customs have an English-cut, at least".[4] Variety applauded the acting of John Howard Davies, Robert Newton and "a standout performance by John Forrest as the sneering, bullying Flashman";[3] while Time Out approved the "solidly carpentered third screen version of Thomas Hughes' famous Rugby story - atmospherically shot on location in the old school itself."[5]
