Description by OLDIES.com:

When his gambler father (Ian Hunter) is wrongly convicted of murder, Johnny Davis (Gene Reynolds) is determined to prove his dad's innocence. Following a series of clues that point to the real killer, Johnny and pals By (Jackie Cooper), Kate (Bonita Granville) and Doc (Leo Gorcey) decide to stage a play that will force a confession and drop the curtain on a murderer.

Product Description:

Though its title suggests a war picture of some sort, MGM's GALLANT SONS actually concerns the efforts of a group of kids to solve a murder. Young Johnny Davis (Gene Reynolds) is beside himself when his gambler father (Ian Hunter) is arrested for murder. In truth, Davis' pop is shielding several other people, whose reputations might have been ruined during his trial. Sensing that something is amiss, Johnny's pal Byron Newbold (Jackie Cooper) and his ragtag collection of tenement cronies play detective themselves to clear the elder Davis' name and trap the actual killer. Bonita Granville, at the time Jackie Cooper's girl friend, plays the only female member of the crime-solving gang. Coincidentally, Cooper, Granville and costar Gene Reynolds would later go into the production end of the business; in fact, in the early 1970s Reynolds would hire Cooper to direct an Emmy-winning episode of MASH.
