The college aerial club is at the airfield to inaugurate a new glider. Alabam gets a lot of teasing for being a "land lizard," never wanting to fly. Mary takes him aside to boost his spirits and offers to take his photo if he'll sit on a glider parked nearby. Dave is ready to take the club's glider up, but Mickey hooks the wrong rope to his car and pulls Alabam into the air. He hasn't a clue what to do; below, Mickey and Dave try to shout instructions while the glider's owner gives chase. What goes up . . .Written by
Mary Kornman persuades Grady Sutton to take the glider the gang has built up. Unfortunately, they can't figure out how to get him down.
THE BOY FRIENDS can be thought of as "Our Gang Become Teenagers", and it was built around original Rascals Mickey Daniel and Mary Kornman. George Stevens got his promotion from cameraman to director Gertrude Messinger and Grady Sutton were added to the bunch, and the skilled Hal Roach writers went to work.... but it was never really a great series, alas,. Still, it's good, and Charlie Hall as the put-upon gilder pilot helps.
