I don't know how this movie has flown under my radar for so long! I just watched it for the first time ever, wonderful set designs by Seuss, it's easy to see his artful touch! which was prevalent in all of his productions, animated as well as live action! Tommy Rettig WAS an original cutie! I love his toothy grin! I especially liked the scene with the Plumber in the Armchair. Now I know how one of our Moderators chose his screen name! A fun movie to watch, with only one reservation, I thought the main dance number was a bit too long, over than that I loved the movie! SO MANY BOYS!!

A very odd film, but I liked it. Tommy Rettig is excellent in this 50's film. Hans Conried was excellent too.
