This film is one the best of the Henry Aldrich film series. Young Henry falls in love with the new band teacher, a much older woman by the name of Louise Elliott. The only problem that Henry has with the teacher is that she likes older type of music, not the modern music which a teen would like. But to the joy of Henry, Miss Elliott also can keep the beat of "boogie Woogie." Henry is so in love with Elliott that she talks him into playing a violin. Of course, the instrument must be supplied by Henry's father, Mr. Aldrich, whom cannot "stand" to spend money or listen to Henry trying to play. To the rescue, Miss Elliott must convince Mr. Aldrich which becomes much easier when he sees her and cannot refuse her any request. He suddenly becomes so interested with her that his level of energy returns, much like a young man of Henry's age. Mr. Aldrich is too old and Henry too young for Miss Elliott but they both try to win her attentions. Who will win, Henry or Mr Aldrich? You must see this film to find out if anyone wins her heart! One clue, near the end of this film Mrs. Aldrich prepares to move out!!!!
