My Son, My Son! is a 1940 American drama film based on a novel by the same name written by Howard Spring and directed by Charles Vidor. It was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Art Direction by John DuCasse Schulze.[1]



Edward Small bought film rights to the book for $50,000[2] in part because he thought it would make an ideal vehicle for his new star, Louis Hayward.[3]

Plans to make the film were temporarily halted due to World War II.[4]
