Gene Reynolds is the son of Senator Herbert Marshall's dead political mentor. Marshall gets Reynolds an appointment as a Senate page. Reynolds is a tough kid, fighting everyone, until radio commentator Virginia Bruce talks him around. The effort also heals the wounds between the politician and the broadcaster. However, when Reynolds is blamed for general page mischief and is expelled, he seeks vengeance.

It's a junior-league version of MR. SMITH GOES TO WASHINGTON, and its view of the Congress as a body that actually works seems a fairy tale in these times: likewise its now old-fashioned view of patriotism. Fortunately, it is acted by a bunch of old pros who can put anything over, including Samuel Hines, Ralph Morgan and J.M. Kerrigan. Even the pageboys are old pros, including Tommy Bond and Dickie Jones.

Gene Reynolds was also a long-time professional for a juvenile. His first movie bit was in the Laurel & Hardy feature, MARCH OF THE WOODEN SOLDIERS. When his acting career ended in the late 1950s, he went behind the camera, to write, produce and direct the TV version of M.A.S.H.
