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.
