If Dennis the Menace was a Girl

Mickey is the teenage daughter of Doctor Kelly, a single parent in small town America. Mickey would rather play baseball with the boys than polish her nails and act like a girl. She hates being a girl, believing it is a lot more fun fighting the boys than giggling with the girls. But this spring, with the baseball team depending on her abilities as the star catcher, something funny happens to Mickey. She discovers strange feelings inside her that she never had before. Mickey is in love with the team pitcher, and doesn't know what to do next. Fortunately there is a new lady next door . . . Mickey's friend Cathy lives next door, and her sophisticated aunt from New York City is visiting. Irene Hervey is Aunt Louise and she helps Mickey understand the strange new feelings of love that she is experiencing. Of course it is spring, and Mickey's dad is feeling like he should marry again to provide the mother for Mickey that she has never had, and scheming Lydia Matthews has her claws into Mickey's dad, and he will probably succumb to her wishes and marry her. But we would much rather see Mickey's dad fall for Irene Hervey than manipulating Mrs. Matthews. Alas, Mickey as usual does all the wrong things, and stumbles into one miss-adventure after another until her reputation and the future of her dad in the new town hospital will be threatened. Can so much trouble and misunderstanding be fixed in the small town where gossip flies faster than jaybirds? Can Mickey successfully transform from a fighting tomboy into a beautiful young lady with the help of Aunt Louise? Will Mickey's dad give in to the wishes of scheming Lydia Matthews . . . or will he discover the beautiful Aunt Louise who is helping Mickey grow up? Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled on it and enjoy the show.
