Henry becomes the town lothario.
23 April 2000 | by (Pasadena, CA) – See all my reviews

The sixth in the Henry Aldrich Series is a winner. Henry Aldrich becomes the town lothario.

Henry wins a Hollywood contest and meets the most beautiful woman in Hollywood. Of course, things happen in Hollywood and he becomes known as a "wolf" to all the girls in Centerville. Henry has to decide whom he wants to take to the school dance, his girlfriend or the bombshell at school. Then it happens - will Henry marry the actress or stay in Centerville?

This is a real funny movie, probably the best of all Henry's. It epitomizes teen life and love in the 40's. A must see for all.
