Entry in Monogram's musical-comedy "Teen Agers" film series. School morale is at an all-time low with a 28-year losing football team, a failing school newspaper and no talent for the annual school bazaar. But with help from Freddie Slack and Jan Savitt, and their Orchestras, the standard Hollywood twists turn everything into a musical success with a happy ending.

Joe DeRita costars as 'Tiny,' owner of the ice cream shop the kids use as their hangout, frequently caught in the middle of their antics.

Future 'Lois Lane' of SUPERMAN serial and TV series fame, Noel Neill costars as one of the Rogers sisters.

Pierre Watkin ('Gov. Huffington') worked with Noel Neill in the Columbia serials SUPERMAN (1948) and ATOM MAN VS. SUPERMAN (1950), as 'Perry White.' Watkin was hired to take over the role of 'Perry White' for the 7th season of THE ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN TV series after actor John Hamilton passed away, but that plan abruptly ended with George Reeves' tragic death.
