For my A to Z Challenge I picked old movies or songs and today for the letter “B”  I have chosen “Boys Town”  starring “Mickey Rooney and Spencer Tracy” two fantastic actors and I might add a great movie.  I cannot tell you how many times I’ve seen it its been so many.  Well, here’s a trailer all about it and believe or not you can watch the whole movie on You Tube any time you want.  You really WILL NOT be disappointed.  ENJOY!!
