Depicts both the prosperity and problems of an American town in wartime. Emphasizes the need to plan for the post-war future to assure continued health and improvements and a good life for returning veterans. Expresses concerns about possible unemployment as war industries close, and the threat of juvenile delinquency as wartime austerity has prevented town spending on recreation for youth. "Life in an American town of 19,000, Glens Falls, N.Y. After views of the town the film particularly considers one family, father working in a factory, mother keeping house, a son in the service, and a high school daughter. Through these four are seen the good things about Hometown and also its problems" (New Movies: The National Board of Review Magazine, September, 1945, p. 12).
