Mary is feeling jittery, before a date with young George Hamilton (as Herbie Shields). Donna reassures her about the older boy, who is "two classes ahead" of Mary. When Jeff understands his sister will be all alone with Mr. Hamilton, he says, "Have fun!" After Mary's date with Hamilton goes badly, she comes home in tears. So, Donna tells her about her own first date with Alex Then, in flashback, Donna nervously meets Alex, for an initial "New Year's Eve" date...
The flashback sequences are not at all convincing. And, it's strange to see her patents push Mary out to a drive-in movie with a visibly weird young man "two classes ahead" of Mary (and, he looks even older). Most other parents would have locked Mary in her room for the evening. If Alfred Hitchcock saw Mr. Hamilton's appearance in this episode, we might have had a different "Psycho" - and a different career for Mr. Hamilton. He turns out to be a nice guy, though.
*** Have Fun (2/4/59) Oscar Rudolph ~ Donna Reed, Shelley Fabares, George Hamilton
