Young Dynamite

I watched an old B movie called Young Dynamite, about a really obnoxious teenager whose older brother becomes a state trooper. The story revolves around gold hoarding in the 1930s after the government banned private ownership. It wasn't bad. Made in the late '30s.

One odd scene. Another trooper tells the younger brother that his brother has been killed.

"I thought you said you could take it," he says.

"I can," the teenage brother says.

"Then can't you smile?"

"I can try."

 What were they thinking?

I don't know why, but there's something disturbing about adults playing teenagers.
