This comedy by the authors of the record-breakers, June Mad and Ever Since Eve, as well as Helen Haves' great success, Harriet, is the laughter-filled story of a boy whose father just can't understand him, and a girl whose mother understands her only too well. Nina Cassell, the charming and youthful mother of two daughters, has patriotically turned one wing of her rambling old residence into an apartment in order to help the government house the militarv personnel of a nearby airfield. When the officer in charge of construction moves in, she is surprised to find that he is one of her old suitors. The girls in the neighborhood have been atwitter over the rumor that the Major's family consists of a son, Newton, who must, they argue, be terrifically dashing and sophisticated because he was born and brought up in New York City, and also has been recently expelled from a swank boarding school. When Newton arrives, he proves to be gentle, absent-minded, and socially awkward, a boy with only one interest in lifeï¿½the scientific breeding of earthworms. How his consuming passion for his earthworms, including Jumbo and Salome, comes into conflict with his passion for the prettiest girl in town, how it disrupts his father's romance with Nina, and almost lands him in jail form the plot of a comedy which combines quick action and delightful dialogue with real emotional values.
