Storyline

The mysterious Mrs. Eleanor Carter moves to Springfield with her two teen-age children Jimmy and Cathy. Eleanor makes friends with the town's social leader, Mrs. Wellington, who supports her idea for a town youth center, and she is aided by Tom Griffith, the high school principal. At the town's annual picnic, to which Eleanor has bought a band (Les Brown and His Band of Reknown), the town busy-body, Eunice, reveals what she had learned from Eleanor's past.

Harmless, Innocuous...and Rather Boring Too
18 September 2005 | by See all my reviews

This teenage opus of a mom (Virginia Field) and her two high schoolers moving to a new town isn't very involving. The plot (what there is) meanders from Field's relationship with Douglas Kennedy, to the kids' adventures in high school, to the local gossip over the skeleton in Field's closet (which itself is pretty bland). Interesting slice-of-life regarding small-town high school life (completely different now) takes back seat to Field's supposedly dark secret. Even the final scene in which everything is resolved isn't too interesting; worth watching for a pre-Granny Irene Ryan and a few (sort of) decent songs.
