A delightful forties family film, The Old Swimmin’ Hole sparkles with the cute smiles of adorable kids and the warm hearts of their parents. A widow, played superbly by the talented silent film star Leatrice Joy, is concerned that she won’t be able to send her brilliant son to medical school. A doctor, played by Charles D. Brown, can’t find love. Fortunately, this film isn’t about the adults! These two isolated adults are single parents for two outrageous and fantastic kids: Chris and Betty, who are adorably boyfriend and girlfriend. Chris and Betty plot to get their parents together and make everybody happy. Overflowing with classic American family values and touching moments of genuine emotion, The Old Swimmin’ Hole is a cool dip into nineteen forties culture, morals, and feelings.
