Junior Miss paints such a vivid picture of life for a middle-class family living in New York City in the mid-1940s, yet its subject matter is easy to relate to even now. The storyline revolves mostly around two young teenage girls who are "bosom friends", and who are constantly getting themselves and others into trouble and mostly just behaving like typical 13-year-olds. As entertaining as they are together, much of the humor is supplied by Judy's long-suffering father and his priceless reactions to his daughters and their friends. The sarcasm is great! This is a great film to watch around Christmas and New Year's Eve, as the storyline is based around that time of year. I have been pestering TCM for years show this movie but, so far, to no avail. As my old Beta copy (taped long ago on AMC) is rapidly dying, I can only hope that someday TCM will honor my request.
