Trivia

Parley Baer left from being the Mayor of Mayberry, to being the Mayor of Hickory. See more »

Goofs

When the Boy Scout Troupe first marches out of Hickory, the boy in the unnamed role of flag bearer has his hair parted on his left side (at 0:17:50), but when they are out in the countryside his hair is parted on his right side (at 0:23:32). Usually, this would mean the film has been flipped left for right, but in that case everyone would have been reversed, whereas Lem's metal is still on his left shirt pocket and his watch is still on his left wrist. This means that either the boy or a production hairdresser parted his hair differently from one day to another, something which could easily happen if the boy usually didn't part his hair at all.

Fun movie and a look back in time
27 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I loved it for the look back at how things worked some 50 years ago. I know it is sugar coated. But the importance that people put in different things back then is good to see.

I love the view of how scouting as an organized group can bring the boys and the community together. My kids loved it and watch it again and again. That does not happen much with movies.

Well filmed and though it has comedy moments it dives into the seriousness of growing up in a small town. The acting is pretty much the same for all movies at the time - a little melodramatic, but during that time period you can expect that. Movies were for all ages adult to kids. So you see silliness in the middle of serious moments.

great film
