Storyline

Phil, a student who recently transferred into his high school, keeps to himself a lot, spending time in his basement building radios and record players. His dad notices that he has no friends, and tells him that, like the electronic parts he assembles, "you have to fit in with all hte other parts." Realizing that the reason he has no friends is because he's not one of the "crowd," Phil studies the most popular kids at school, in order to see what traits they admire most, so he can be like them and fit in.

Weird, but interesting - for about 10 minutes
17 November 2006 | by (Arizona) – See all my reviews

too bad it's 14 minutes long.

It's Darren - err, I mean Dick York at age 19, 17 years before he played Darren.

He's a geek trying to figure out how to make it with the popular kids. The keys to popularity are being a good listener and being helpful.

Amazingly enough, he looks almost exactly like he did in Bewitched. Who'd a thunk he'd end up marrying Elizabeth Montgomery?

Did they really show this crap to kids in school back in the late '40s?

I'm sorry, but there's not much to say - it's only 14 minutes long. It is an interesting insight into how people thought in 1947, I guess.
