Storyline

Margie and her daughter reminisce about Margie’s girlhood in the roaring twenties. In flashback, Margie, a smarter, less popular girl at Central High, meets handsome new French teacher Ralph Fontayne; circumstances keep throwing them together and Margie, in company with every other girl in school, develops a crush on him. Then Margie’s date for the prom gets sick, and what happens next surprises everyone.

Delightful comedy is a triumph for Jeanne Crain…

Margie, Nostalgic fluff about a 1920s schoolgirl (Jeanne Crain) with a crush on her handsome French teacher (Glenn Langan) and the trials and tribulations of growing up during the flapper age of “Flaming Youth”. A charming musical delight with some lively performances from Barbara Lawrence (in her usual fast girl role), Lynn Bari, Alan Young and Conrad Janis.

Jeanne Crain was a popular star at Fox when this was made and her appeal was never more apparent than as the sweetly innocent heroine who gradually emerges as a woman unafraid of her convictions. Her beauty is the refreshing kind that looks so good in technicolor and the story is just the sort of vehicle she needed to showcase her natural charm and ability.Tastefully photographed with some nice period music and well directed by Henry King, it became one of the most popular films of 1946. It has lost none of its charm. Well worth viewing.

A truly delightful movie!

It is a real shame that this film is not available on video. I taped it from AMC a while back for my mother, and later made another copy for myself. I’ve watched it often enough that I’m afraid the tape will wear out.

Jeanne Crain is terrific, as is the rest of the cast. The story is adorable, and one really feels for Margie in her teenage angst. All in all, it is a wonderful movie; one which I could watch over and over.
