An amusing slice of teen life during WWII
18 January 2004 | by (Illinois) – See all my reviews

The Henry Aldrich series is a period piece - a funny, wonderful slice of American life during WWII. It gives me a picture of what my parents might have done, watched, wore, danced or listened to when they were teenagers. Jimmy Lydon, a popular child star of the era, playing opposite the blooming Elizabeth Taylor in "Life With father" and "Cynthia" is always a lot of laughs and quite appealing. I only wish the movies were shown again on network, cable or available on tape or DVD.
