Storyline

Chicagoan Nick Conover received a suspended sentence for being caught joyriding in a stolen car, with his driver's license suspended indefinitely. Nicky's problems are seen as running around with the wrong crowd. Nicky's sentence is predicated on him living at the run down Kentucky horse farm of his Aunt Henrietta and Uncle Jed Bruce, who he hasn't seen since he was a child. The judge figured this more wholesome environment would get Nicky away from his bad influences. Henrietta wants to be a part of Nicky's salvation, but Jed doesn't trust the fact of a delinquent being under his roof, although he has other more personal reasons not having to do with Nicky for his initially antagonistic relationship with his nephew. Nicky doesn't rebel against farm life, but ends up gravitating toward anything mechanical, especially the sports car owned by sophisticated Fran Templeton - the elder daughter of Dan Templeton, who owns the luxurious neighboring horse farm - and by association Fran ...

Car-racing in Central Kentucky? With music, no less?
31 May 2001 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Set in Central Kentucky, we find bad boy Pat Boone(!) as a juvenile delinquent sent to his uncle's farm for rehabilitation. Along the way to recovery he meets Shirley Jones, and gets involved with drag-racers. If this film were made in the forties, we'd see Mickey Rooney riding horses for Walter Brennan. Still, this film is a pleasant time-filler. Pat of course sings the title song, and he and Shirley have a fine time singing at the cook-out.
