One of over 700 Paramount Productions, filmed between 1929 and 1949, which were sold to MCA/Universal in 1958 for television distribution, and have been owned and controlled by Universal ever since. Its initial television presentation took place in Chicago Saturday 28 February 1959 on WBBM (Channel 2). But sponsor interest was minimal and it was not taken off the shelf again until 28 December 1959 when it aired in Grand Rapids on WOOD (Channel 8), and 25 February 1960 in Detroit on WJBK (Channel 2).

This is number seven in the Henry Aldrich series with Lydon. Henry becomes a mature young man.
Henry and Dizzy become Boy Scout leaders. Henry is enamored by Elyse Towers, and does his best to impress her. Unfortunately, a boy comes to town - the son of his father's friend - who is a brat. Darryl Hickman is the brat and does a good job of being the movie's troublemaker, Peter Kent. As a favor to his father, Henry allows Peter into his troop. When Henry and Dizzy go off to compete for the Scout's top honors, Peter causes more trouble than Henry could have. So much happens, and Henry being responsible, takes the blame for Peter.
This is another one of the better Henry Aldrich movies. Henry becomes a mature, young man and we see a side of Henry that is rare. This is a good movie to see with the troop, family and just about any group. It's team oriented, and touching.
