Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Previously filmed in 1917 and 1928, the beloved Gene Stratton-Porter novel Freckles again went before the cameras in 1935. Tom Brown plays the title character, a gangly orphan who takes a watchman's job at a rugged lumber camp. Soon proving himself worthy of his responsibilities, Freckles turns his attention to the wooing of ingenue Mary Arden (Carol Stone). Our hero's mettle is tested to the utmost when he goes to the rescue of little Laurie Loui (Virginia Weidler), who's been kidnapped by bandits. Freckles was given a fourth cinematic go-round by 20th Century-Fox in 1960.
