A bright satirical comedy about an innocent high school girl granted her wishes by a student prodigy. A broad satire of teenage culture in the sixties, its targets ranging from progressive education to beach movies.
This film was first telecast in Los Angeles Tuesday 5 March 1957 on KTTV (Channel 11); its San Francisco television premiere took place 18 May 1958 on KGO-TV (Channel 7); in New York City its earliest documented airing is 3 July 1959 on WCBS (Channel 2). At this time, color broadcasting was in its infancy, limited to only a small number of high rated programs, primarily on NBC and NBC affiliated stations, so these film showings were all still in B&W. Viewers were not offered the opportunity to see these films in their original Technicolor until several years later. See more »

I'm a bit late to this discussion, but the reviewer who kept harping on Powell not being an actress makes no sense. She carries herself quite well; of course she can act. Geez--she's charming and handles the role well. Someone who can't act would come across as a clueless amateur. Powell did just fine here and elsewhere. Look at SEVEN BRIDES FOR SEVEN BROTHERS.
Oh yeah, and ROYAL WEDDING. Powell did well opposite many a Hollywood star.
Anyway, even though this movie is hardly among the classics, it's a fine showcase for Powell.
