    What a hoot! They must have the worst directors ever at coronet. Don’t you just love the women’s thick eyebrows? They had others on youtube about going steady, are you ready for marriage, but I’m still chuckling from this one.

  4. I wonder how many people remember him some years later as the first Darren on “Bewitched”. In the 40’s, all those films must have been shown in schools at club meetings like Y Teens, or in church youth groups, etc. I can’t think where else they could have been shown then. Rock and roll hadn’t come along yet with the sock hops. 😀 — Suzanne
