Beautiful San Antonio
31 January 2004 | by (Georgia) – See all my reviews

Jane Withers is wonderful and funny, as always. You never doubt for a moment that she'll wind up being the girl everyone loves. The location for filming is the famous San Antonio High School, voted one of the Most Beautiful High Schools in America back in '30s or '40s. It still exists, and is still beautiful, an architectural marvel!
