Wonderfully funny and cute story of our youth!
25 June 2003 | by (Reno, Nevada) – See all my reviews

Hello, I enjoy this movie every time I am lucky enough to see it on television. I first saw this movie in 1946 when I was 9 years old. I live in Reno, Nevada and this movie was filmed in Reno in 1945. The actor, Conrad Janis, who plays the College boy, Johnny, became Mindy's father on the television series "Mork and Mindy" in the early 80's. He was so cute! Thank you for listening.
