Abstract:

The Teen Agers dally with romance on summer vacation. "Following high school graduation, students Freddie and Roy and their girl friends, Dodie and her sister Betty, travel West with their friend Lee and other classmates to the town of Gulch's Gulch to spend the summer at a ranch inherited by their teacher, Miss Mathilde Hinklefink. Miss Hinklefink and Professor Owen Townley, whom she loves, escort the teenagers, and they arrive in time for a bank robbery. The robbery is blamed on 'Angel Face' Harrigan, who always drank milk, and who disappeared years earlier after reportedly killing the town sheriff. Actually, the murder was committed by real estate agent Sneed, who left Angel Face to perish in the desert and is now the secret leader of a band of outlaws. When Freddie orders milk in the saloon, he is mistaken for Angel Face, and the sheriff sends a posse after him. Meanwhile, at Hacienda Hinklefink, Betty, a bookworm, reads a book about old western heroes and loses interest in Roy. Ranch foreman Big Jim, who is a member of Sneed's gang, makes several unsuccessful attempts to murder Freddie before sending the gang after him. Freddie, however, believes Roy is pulling a hoax and holds up the gang with cap guns, scaring them off. Roy later tells Freddie that his assailants were real gang members, and Freddie recalls hearing a familiar voice among them. In order to identify the voice, Roy, Freddie, Lee, Betty and Dodie invite everyone in town to a square dance. While the town is deserted, Sneed prepares to steal a silver shipment and has Freddie kidnapped so that he will be blamed for the robbery. By singing a sentimental song about mothers, Freddie makes his captors cry, and escapes with Lee and Dodie in time to intercept the silver. En route to the sheriff, Freddie is forced to 'powwow' with an Indian chief because he gave a ring to a pretty Indian girl, who now insists on marrying him. Lee helps Freddie escape to the ranch, where he hands over the silver to the sheriff, and is arrested as Angel Face. Sneed then encourages a public lynching of Freddie, while Roy catches Big Jim escaping in the car containing the silver. As Freddie is about to be hanged, Roy returns with Big Jim, who reveals Sneed's guilt. Although Sneed pulls a gun, Dodie trips him, and he is arrested. The vacation ends happily as the Indian girl befriends a helpless Lee, Roy and Freddie prove to their girl friends that they are real western heroes, and Roy reads a book on the heroines of history. Professor Townley then accepts Miss Hinklefink's marriage proposal"--AFI catalog, 1941-1950.
