Storyline

Willie Taylor, small-town 4th-grade schoolboy, takes to heart his admired teacher's words about truthfulness, and repeats in public his uncle's remark about paying a kickback to the mayor. Result: principal Miss Dabney (a political appointee) suspends Willie from school, and teacher Joan Madison, up against a political machine, enlists amorous columnist Ernie Miller to turn Willie's case into a cause celebre...

Charming little film

I will be honest, I wanted to watch this film because, and just because, it is made by Jerry Hopper, a director I saw almost all movies. Crime, westerns, adventure ones, and very efficiently done. Always. I knew this feature was a comedy, and I usually avoid comedies. But the Universal Studios comedies are not so dull. I watched some of them directed by Jack Sher, Harry Keller, very rare, never released in France, and I admit it is always a pleasure to discover such little gems.

This one, about a young boy who wants to talk, intrude himself in adult affairs, is delicious. And the gorgeous Maureen O Hara, one of the few remaining female Hollywood movie stars still alive - with Laureen Bacall and Olivia De Havilland - is always worth seeing. I won't never be tired of her. Universal Studios is one of my all favourites, because it offered us pretty good pieces of work, as well in horror, scifi, crime, westerns, adventure films. And these were never boring or corny films. And often grade B pictures, but fancy B pictures. This comedy movie is also somewhere a B movie, pure Universal product, so charming and entertaining.

I don't regret it, even if I don't usually like comedies.
