movie involving the TV and radio characters
21 March 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I remember the TV series "Our Miss Brooks," though it's possible I saw it in syndication. 1952 is a little early, even for me.

After the show was canceled, this film was made, completely ignoring the fact that Brooks had moved on to an elementary school. We go back to her arrival at Madison High, meeting Mr. Boynton, etc. We also have a subplot involving a student (Nick Adams) and his wealthy father (Don Porter).

I love seeing Richard Crenna playing the teen-aged Walter Denton - he went on to so much good work in TV and film. Eve Arden plays Miss Brooks the way unmarried women were played in those days -- desperate to get married. Arden always had that wry delivery that served her well in this role. Despite wanting to nab Mr. Boynton, the character of Connie Brooks is a good teacher and an independent woman, dedicated to her work and students.

Robert Rockwell, Gale Gordon, and the rest of the TV cast is on board. Few people realize that Robert Rockwell worked into the mid-'90s, and if you recall the Werther's candy commercial with the attractive white-haired man giving his grandson Werther's, that was him.

Nice trip down nostalgia lane. It was a more innocent time for sure.
