The Boy Scouts of America provided a technical adviser to Paramount Pictures during filming, credited as E.B. DeGroot. As a result, those familiar with Scouting will find the movie highly accurate in its depiction of Scouting details. See more »
This is number seven in the Henry Aldrich series with Lydon. Henry becomes a mature young man.
Henry and Dizzy become Boy Scout leaders. Henry is enamored by Elyse Towers, and does his best to impress her. Unfortunately, a boy comes to town - the son of his father's friend - who is a brat. Darryl Hickman is the brat and does a good job of being the movie's troublemaker, Peter Kent. As a favor to his father, Henry allows Peter into his troop. When Henry and Dizzy go off to compete for the Scout's top honors, Peter causes more trouble than Henry could have. So much happens, and Henry being responsible, takes the blame for Peter.
This is another one of the better Henry Aldrich movies. Henry becomes a mature, young man and we see a side of Henry that is rare. This is a good movie to see with the troop, family and just about any group. It's team oriented, and touching.
