American stage and film star Otto Kruger heads the cast of the above-average British comedy The Housemaster. Kruger, in the title role, presides benevolently over the students of a private boys' school. A new headmaster, who is as rigid and rule-bound as Kruger is kind and understanding, gives the housemaster all sorts of grief. When the nasty headmaster pulls strings to get Kruger transferred, the students take matters in their own hands. The Housemaster was based on a play by Ian Hay.
