Rewarded for excelling in a bible-studies test, Sarah is taken to her first picture show by John-Boy, with reluctant approval of her hovering mother. Sarah is looking for a way out from under her mother's smothering attentions and sees marriage to John-Boy as the answer. John-Boy isn't ready for such a step (nor does he love Sarah), so she plots to elope with a rich boy she knows. Written by
