Storyline

Young Henry Aldrich would like to "win" a trip to Alaska. But in order to participate, he first has to put up $100. The whole matter sounds awfully fishy. Henry and his pal Dizzy go into the soap business. Their attempt to raise money turns into a disaster when they get the soap formula wrong. But the Alaska trip is really on the level. It's been organized by Sylvanus Q. Sattherwaite, businessman and philanthropist. But Henry still doesn't have the money... Written by David Steele

Gem of a movie!
18 March 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Henry( Jackie Cooper) sees an advertisement for an educational summer trip to Alaska. However, he's required to earn $100.00 and obtain 3 recommendations. The man sponsoring the trip is Mr. Sattherwaite ( Moroni Olsen). Henry fails to get a job, but he does get an idea to make & sell soap. He enlists the help of his best friend Dizzy ( Eddie Bracken). The soap project fails-but Henry does win the winning ticket at the local movie theater. Henry always seems to be doing the wrong thing,despite his best intentions. This was Jackie Cooper's second & last Henry Aldrich film. He stated that he felt that he had outgrown the role. Jimmy Lydon played Henry in the next 9 films. It was also great to see Rod Cameron in an early role. He played; Bill van Dusen-one of the 3 persons to write a recommendation for Henry. Hedda Hopper played Henry's mother & Fred Niblo was his father.
