Its title notwithstanding, White Flannels starts out in a grimy coal-mining town. Mrs. Jacob Politz (Louise Dresser) scrimps, saves and sacrifices to send her son Frank (Jason Robards Sr.) to a fancy New England college. He soon becomes Big Man on Campus, adored by everyone -- but all this comes to an end when his snobbish chums find out about his low-born family. Though he initially expresses embarrassment and humiliation, Frank comes to realize that the love of his mother is more important to him than any of his phony-baloney society "friends." Brooks Benedict, who played one of Harold Lloyd's college tormentors in The Freshman, offers a virtual reprise of his earlier role in White Flannels.
