Directed by Hugh Bennett

Runtime: 64 min.

Genre: comedy

Print Quality: B



For this entry in the popular Henry Aldrich series, bumbling typical high school student

Henry (Jimmy Lydon) catches sight of the new band teacher Louise Elliott (Marian Hall) and

really likes what he sees. Quickly developing a mad crush on her, Henry goes so far as to

join the band just to be near her. Although he's initially upset that she likes "square" music,

she surprises him with her diversity — it turns out she can play a mean boogie woogie

when necessary. Hoping to impress the teacher, Henry agrees to take up the violin. Henry,

of course, does not have a violin, which means he has to try to convince the rather

tightfisted Mr. Aldrich to buy one. His task is made easier when Miss Elliott makes the

request herself and Mr. Aldrich sees for himself why Henry is so anxious to impress his

teacher. Henry gets the violin, but in typical fashion, it somehow gets switched with the

priceless instrument of a visiting concert violinist. Before Henry discovers the mix-up, he

somehow misplaces the rare violin — and must then track it down and recover it before it's

too late.
