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.

A man becomes a scoutmaster and has some funny adventures with the troop.good drama/comedy
3 August 2001 | by (Vacaville,CA, USA) – See all my reviews

In this movie a man moves into a town in the 1940 or it is 1930'(not sure which) a starts a new job. Then one day during a town meeting he volunteers to lead the local Boy Scout Troop. Of course this also leads to romance(it is Disney movie so it's standard) with one of the town's women. The only bad thing is she is going out with a rich,snobby guy . Eventually they both fall in love and get married. A young Kurt Russell also stars in this movie as boy always getting into trouble and treating the other boys meanly. The scout troop has pleanty of misadventures including accidently getting into a miltary "war games" .

Then many years World War 2 arrives. The young man who was always teasing everyone is now a soldier and a doctor.he also married a fellow solider. Everyone else in the orginal troop grew up as well. The troop honors their former scoutmaster with a touching day honoring him. If you like Fred Mccurray or Kurt Russell you might like this movie! This moive is a good drama/comedy.. It makes one wonder why Disney does not make these kinds of movies any more besides all this stupid live action movies. This movie was fresh in 1966 and it's still fresh today!

One question though.. When/Will will this come out on DVD?
