Corliss Archer, 15, and Mildred Pringle, 17, are best friends, and get into
some mischief together which causes their parents to start fighting over
who is a bad influence on whom. Their fight also has an affect on Mildred
and Lenny Archer, Corliss' brother, who elope one weekend when
Lenny's home on leave from the Army. Fearing that the Pringles would
want the marriage annulled, the couple decides not to tell anyone about it
except Corliss. Then, when Mildred gets pregnant, Corliss goes with her
to her doctor, and is seen leaving the office. Mrs. Pringle gets the wrong
idea, and goes over to the Archers to tell them that Corliss is pregnant.
It's not long before they think that Corliss' boyfriend Dexter is the father.
Then, to buy them some time, Corliss tells her parents that she and
Dexter are married, all the while trying to contact Mildred at every
opportunity. Suddenly, Corliss' uncle, a navy chaplain, shows up and
offers to give them a real home wedding right there!
