One of over 700 Paramount Productions, filmed between 1929 and 1949, which were sold to MCA/Universal in 1958 for television distribution, and have been owned and controlled by Universal ever since. Its initial television presentation took place in Chicago Saturday 17 January 1959 on WBBM (Channel 2). Sponsor interest was apparently minimal, and it was not taken off the shelf until over a year later, when it was once again taken out of the vault and aired in Detroit 6 May 1960 on WJBK (Channel 2), in Columbus 18 May 1960 on WBNS (Channel 10), in Johnstown 18 September 1960 on WJAC (Channel 6), and in Cleveland 15 December 1960 on WJW (Channel 8).

This film is one the best of the Henry Aldrich film series. Young Henry falls in love with the new band teacher, a much older woman by the name of Louise Elliott. The only problem that Henry has with the teacher is that she likes older type of music, not the modern music which a teen would like. But to the joy of Henry, Miss Elliott also can keep the beat of "boogie Woogie." Henry is so in love with Elliott that she talks him into playing a violin. Of course, the instrument must be supplied by Henry's father, Mr. Aldrich, whom cannot "stand" to spend money or listen to Henry trying to play. To the rescue, Miss Elliott must convince Mr. Aldrich which becomes much easier when he sees her and cannot refuse her any request. He suddenly becomes so interested with her that his level of energy returns, much like a young man of Henry's age. Mr. Aldrich is too old and Henry too young for Miss Elliott but they both try to win her attentions. Who will win, Henry or Mr Aldrich? You must see this film to find out if anyone wins her heart! One clue, near the end of this film Mrs. Aldrich prepares to move out!!!!
