British college professor seeks peace in a California beach house but has nothing but trouble from an uninvited female 'juvenile delinquent', a neighbor with a mischievous dog, and a bevy of amorous American woman.
Widower and hamburger restaurateur Harvey Howard decides to go to college at 51 years of age. Resisting the easy path, he insists on not receiving preferential treatment, and lives in a dorm like the other students despite the disapproval of his grown son and daughter. As the years pass, and he gets involved in study sessions, fraternity initiations, and sporting events, he begins falling in love with Professor Gautier, the French teacher, but doesn't consider re-marrying appropriate.

I caught this movie on the AMC morning movie yesterday. It was charming, bouncy and fun- everything a good, clean comedy should be. I enjoyed the music and the wholesome-ness of the show. Too bad we don't have movies like this made any more. The cast is full of fresh faced kids (Richard Beymer, Tuesday Weld, Fabian) who later went on to bigger projects. The storyline is upbeat and it is a pleasure to watch the time progress in the movie by using holidays and activities as a dateline. Ben Crosby is generally not a favorite of mine, but I actually enjoyed him in this role. High Times made me yearn for the days of simpler times (bonfires, hay rides, cotillions). The remake (Back to School) is just not the same. High Time is a thoroughly enjoyable movie to watch!
