ashley h A Yank at Eton is a decent film. It is about high school football star Tim Dennis who has big plans for his future but has to move to England after his mom marries an Englishman. Mickey Rooney and Edmund Gwen give good performances. The screenplay is a little slow in places. Norman Taurog did an alright job directing this movie. I liked this motion picture because of the humor. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member good 'fish out of water' tale Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Read all reviews
