OVERVIEW

Brief Synopsis

Child film star Jane Powell, fed up with her every move being stage managed by her stage mother, runs away and joins the U.S. Crop Corps, a small army of young folks staying at youth hostels and picking crops while adult farmworkers are at war. Totally clueless about the real world, befuddled Jane is embroiled in teen-romance complications while Mother frantically searches. Will her stardom help or hinder her new friends? W.C. Fields does a short act with Bergen and McCarthy.
