When a military academy goes co-ed due to financial difficulties, the ghost of the school's founder doesn't approve. Also, a new cadet at the school is targeted by a scheming aunt after his inheritance. This enjoyable family film originally aired as part of Disney's Wonderful World TV series. If it had been made ten years earlier, it almost certainly would have been released theatrically. Dick O'Neill, Victor French, and Louise Latham are fun as the ghosts. Monte Markham and Renne Jarrett are the respective heads of the boy and girl sides of the school. Ruta Lee and Vito Scotti are the wicked aunt and her husband. All of the adult actors are good but the kids are pretty forgettable, which is unusual for a Disney movie. It's a pleasant way to pass the time but nothing particularly special. Thanks to TCM for showing it otherwise I'd probably never have seen it.
