Goofs

Lem takes Vida to the movies on their first date to see a Ronald Colman and Carole Lombard picture, but his dialogue is interrupted (conveniently) before he can name the movie title. In front of the theater the marquis shows the title of the feature, "Altar Bound", along with the two stars names. The movie "Altar Bound" however, appears to be fictional. See more »

great movie
7 October 2004 | by (Baton Rouge, La) – See all my reviews

I found that this movie is the best boyscout movie ever made. It has a great cast with Kurt Russell and Fred McMurray leading the amazing cast. With Vera Miles and the rest making it could holsom movie that everybody will enjoy young and old. It shows how one man can take a group of boys and send them off into the world to become doctors and even the governor of what ever state this movie is set in, and how a pull of a string can give a group of boys a great adventure. This movie is start in the early formation of the boyscout movement and ends in the early 1950. It can be seen how the troop in the movie changes through the years. It is a good movie and is a must for every body to see.
