Delightful comedy is a triumph for Jeanne Crain...
30 July 2001 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

Nostalgic fluff about a 1920s schoolgirl (Jeanne Crain) with a crush on her handsome French teacher (Glenn Langan) and the trials and tribulations of growing up during the flapper age of "Flaming Youth". A charming musical delight with some lively performances from Barbara Lawrence (in her usual fast girl role), Lynn Bari, Alan Young and Conrad Janis.

Jeanne Crain was a popular star at Fox when this was made and her appeal was never more apparent than as the sweetly innocent heroine who gradually emerges as a woman unafraid of her convictions. Her beauty is the refreshing kind that looks so good in technicolor and the story is just the sort of vehicle she needed to showcase her natural charm and ability.

Tastefully photographed with some nice period music and well directed by Henry King, it became one of the most popular films of 1946. It has lost none of its charm. Well worth viewing.
