A cheaply made B programmer from Columbia, and probably one of the very first "teenager" movies - the only thing "Let's Go Steady" has to offer are three campy swing numbers. The first two feature the very young Mel Torme and his Meltones vocal group, and the third (and best number) is "The Baby Boogie," sung by Torme while four sensational jitterbug dancers get groovy nearby. a couple of additional musical numbers are pretty painful. Torme's co-star is June Preisser, an acrobatic dancer of meager talents, but who had the kind of peppy, cutie-pie energy to get parts in a string of high school bobbysoxer musicals until her career completely fizzled out by the late forties.
