Gem of a movie!
Henry( Jackie Cooper) sees an advertisement for an educational summer trip to Alaska. However, he's required to earn $100.00 and obtain 3 recommendations. The man sponsoring the trip is Mr. Sattherwaite ( Moroni Olsen). Henry fails to get a job, but he does get an idea to make & sell soap. He enlists the help of his best friend Dizzy ( Eddie Bracken). The soap project fails-but Henry does win the winning ticket at the local movie theater. Henry always seems to be doing the wrong thing,despite his best intentions. This was Jackie Cooper's second & last Henry Aldrich film. He stated that he felt that he had outgrown the role. Jimmy Lydon played Henry in the next 9 films. It was also great to see Rod Cameron in an early role. He played; Bill van Dusen-one of the 3 persons to write a recommendation for Henry. Hedda Hopper played Henry's mother & Fred Niblo was his father.
