This movie was released about two weeks before the final episode of the TV series on which it was based aired. In the final (4th) season, the show was overhauled and many of the regular characters were dropped (although some came back during the season). Miss Brooks and Mr. Conklin moved to a private elementary school in the San Fernando Valley. The movie ignored all this and all the original regular characters were back at Madison High School for the conclusion of the Brooks-Boynton courtship. Perhaps 30 years later, the final season of the TV show would have been dismissed as a "dream." See more
