Young Woodley is a 1930 British drama film directed by Thomas Bentley and starring Madeleine Carroll, Frank Lawton and Sam Livesey.

Production

The film was based on the controversial 1925 play Young Woodley by John Van Druten. Bentley had previously directed a 1928 silent version, but the film was never released, and he re-made it in sound using some of the same actors. A school prefect becomes attracted to the headmaster's wife. The film, like the play, was noted for its subversive attitude to authority. The pompous and cold headmaster is portrayed as the villain of the work. The film was not a major success when it was released despite its large budget and well-known subject matter.
