"Tomboy Kitty Russell would rather ride horses and dream of owning a motorcycle than pay attention to her classes at the Spring Valley School for Girls, much to the despair of her teachers. The handsome school principal, Dr. Franklin Meredith, listens to the advice of teacher Alice Carter, who urges him to induce Kitty to attend one of the school's tea dances, to which the neighboring Carver cadets are invited. Kitty's father sends her a pretty party dress, and on the day of the dance, Meredith praises Kitty's newly found [femininity] and gives her a bouquet of flowers. Although Kitty spends the afternoon dancing with Carver cadet Tom Brighton, she thinks only of Meredith. She develops a crush on the prinicipal, and because her friends tell her that giving flowers is a sign of love, believes that Meredith returns her feelings. One night, Kitty sneaks out of her dormitory, and when Meredith finds her outside his house, she pretends she is sleepwalking. She falls off the wall on which she is walking, and Meredith catches her. Miss Steele, a priggish teacher, finds them and escorts Kitty home. Soon after, Kitty accepts Tom's pin, even though she confesses to her roommate Madge that she is actually in love with an older man. One afternoon, Miss Steele finds a love letter, obviously written by a student, in a classroom waste basket. The letter's author rhapsodizes about a meeting in the moonlight and being held in her beloved's arms, and the scandalized Miss Steele demands that Meredith investigate immediately. Through checking the handwriting, Alice determines that Kitty wrote the letter, but when Meredith confronts her about it, she refuses to discuss it. Meredith warns her that she will be brought up on charges in front of the teacher's council, and the girl, who wrote the fanciful letter about Meredith himself, runs from the room. Kitty runs away that night, and when she is discovered missing, Madge reveals that Kitty mentioned her love for an older man. Fearing that Kitty has eloped, Meredith searches for her and finds her at a train station with Sheriff Bill Stone, who had given the youngster a ride. After establishing that Stone is not Kitty's older lover and that the child had merely tried to run away, Meredith returns her to the school. Miss Steele and Oliver Brixton, another conservative teacher, insist on conducting an official investigation, during the course of which Kitty confides to Alice that Meredith is the object of her overwrought affections. Realizing that the girl's crush is harmless, Alice succeeds in calming down the other teachers and convincing them to forget the matter. Kitty, however, believes that Meredith still loves her and will ask her to marry him after graduation in June. Several months pass until the night of the graduation dance arrives. Kitty tells Tom that she has another admirer and returns his pin, but his pleas that he will 'go to the dogs; without her convince her to stick by him. Kitty then informs the bewildered Meredith that he must give her up so that she can save Tom, and also that Alice has been in love with him for a long time. At the dance, Kitty and Tom are reconciled and Meredith finally begins romancing Alice"--AFI catalog, 1941-1950

"When druggist John Jones plans to give the opening address at the Neighborhood Druggists' Association convention held on the 4th of July at Crystal Lake, his family of three sons, two daughters, wife and mother, insists that they be allowed to come along and convinces him to buy a trailer for the outing. After various mishaps occur on the first day of travel, the Jones family stops for the night to set up camp. John instructs his skeptical sons, Jack and Roger, on the proper way to build a fire, but succeeds only in filling the trailer with smoke. His teen-aged daughter Bonnie climbs a tree to escape a playful bearcub, of whom she is terrified, and she is greatly relieved when a stranger, Tom Williams, pulls the cub away. Williams, who tells the family that he was left behind by his train, fixes the stove in the trailer and successfully intercedes when a deputy sheriff threatens to fine John for building a fire in a restricted area. At Crystal Lake, Williams courts Bonnie, and Jack falls for a vacationing girl named Mabel, who has a penchant for fast boats and peppy music, while John prepares his speech and his bookish adolescent daughter Lucy attempts to write a novel. After Jack and Mabel stave a rented motorboat, the owner, Mr. Sweeney, allows Jack to spade a large plot of land to pay for the repairs. Jack tricks Roger, an extremely entrepreneurly-minded adolescent, into digging the plot to find Indian arrowheads to sell. Roger, displeased, sneaks up on Jack kissing Mabel and takes their picture. When he threatens to show the photo to the fellows back home, Jack is forced to agree to Roger's price for the negative. Meanwhile, a Department of Justice official comes looking for Williams, really a fugitive from the Illinois State Penitentiary named Silky Walker. After Williams tricks the unsuspecting Bonnie into leaving with him in the family car, Roger finds a typed farewell note. John, with Jack and Roger, borrows Mr. Sweeney's car, which he learns too late has no brakes, and chases Williams and Bonnie. After Bonnie threatens to jump and John, unwittingly, does not let Williams get around him, Williams stops the car and concedes defeat. The family learns that the farewell note was from Lucy's romantic manuscript, and on the trip home, after John points out that they should have nothing more to do with strangers, he nevertheless stops to pick up a lone boy hitchhiking, whose large family, hiding behind bushes, then pile into the trailer"--AFI catalog, 1931-1940
