Corliss Archer, 15, and Mildred Pringle, 17, are best friends, and get into some mischief together which causes their parents to start fighting over who is a bad influence on whom. Their fight also has an affect on Mildred and Lenny Archer, Corliss' brother, who elope one weekend when Lenny's home on leave from the Army. Fearing that the Pringles would want the marriage annulled, the couple decides not to tell anyone about it except Corliss. Then, when Mildred gets pregnant, Corliss goes with her to her doctor, and is seen leaving the office. Mrs. Pringle gets the wrong idea, and goes over to the Archers to tell them that Corliss is pregnant. It's not long before they think that Corliss' boyfriend Dexter is the father. Then, to buy them some time, Corliss tells her parents that she and Dexter are married, all the while trying to contact Mildred at every opportunity. Suddenly, Corliss' uncle, a navy chaplain, shows up and offers to give them a real home wedding right there! Written by

Why are you driving me home? I wasn't selling kisses. I think it's all very dumb.
Oh, Mother, I don't see why you're making such a fuss about it. After all, it was only -
Be quiet, Corliss.
I'm sorry you're upset, Mother, but I don't see any harm in what we did.
Perhaps not, but you're nearly eighteen and Corliss isn't even sixteen yet. Besides, Corliss has been brought up quite differently.
I resent that remark.

I didn't have high expectations for this film. I feared Shirley Temple as a teenager would be awkward. However, this movie was surprisingly entertaining! It was well paced, with a strong supporting cast. The plot twists were quite funny. Shirley plays Corliss Archer; She agrees to keep her brother's secret marriage underwraps, and winds up getting herself in a lot of trouble.
