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 ...

Antiseptic 50s film fare
21 July 2002 | by (New York, New York) – See all my reviews

Contrary to what another poster mentioned, this was made earlier in the 40s as HOME IN INDIANA. He was partially correct, Walter Brennan was in it, but Lon McAllister was the juve star, this was a Fox film, and Mickey Rooney was an MGM player. This film must have been a sigh of relief to parents concerned about role models such as Brando and Dean, but the married Boone even insisted that he not be seen kissing a co-star, so we get one of the tamest screen romances ever in a by then cliched storyline that somehow managed to rake in big bucks, possibly fueled by what I have to admit is a decent title tune.
