Keepers of Youth is a 1931 British drama film directed by Thomas Bentley and starring Garry Marsh, Ann Todd and Robin Irvine.[1] It was based on the 1929 play Keepers of Youth by Arnold Ridley, and marked the film debut of Ann Todd.[2][3]


The arrival of Mr. Knox, the new sports instructor at a British public school, heralds trouble. He imposes his dominant personality to influence colleagues and the headmaster alike, and then attempts to force himself on Millicent, the assistant matron.
