User Reviews

Always Welcome Connie Brooks
17 March 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film came out right after the cancellation of the popular TV series in 1956. The writers (from the original series) completely ignored the fact that the TV show underwent a major format change in it's last season. Miss Brooks went to work in an elementary school following the demolition of Madison High. This change never completely worked and the series was cancelled. That said, this feature tells the story, from the beginning, of Miss Brooks arriving in Madison, meeting and moving in with Mrs. Davis, and progressing in her romance with Mr. Boynton over a period of months. There is a secondary romantic subplot interjected with Don Porter, and the film unfolds with virtually the entire cast from the beloved series. The Warner Bros. designed sets closely approximate the ones fashioned at Desilu for the TV show, and Minerva the cat (played by the same cat from the 1950 comedy "Rhubarb") gets ample screen time. Fans of the series and even those who have never seen it or heard the many radio episodes out there will enjoy this funny, gentle story of Connie Brooks and her co-horts.
