Garson was near the end of her MGM days when she made this trifle based on Louise Baker's story "Miss Baker's Dozen." She plays a teacher who oversees a class of 13 boys, all of whom are determined to make her life difficult. Under the watchful eyes of prissy headmaster Haydn, Garson has

to run the gauntlet that the boys erect. Meanwhile, she is chased by Ryan, another teacher at the school, and Sullivan, a millionaire whose son is one of the students. Need we say that love triumphs over money and that Garson winds up with Ryan? There is not much to recommend this film that seems

like a half-hour sitcom that's been expanded. James Arness, before he became Matt Dillon, is the gym teacher, a huge lout with single-syllable speeches. Frances Bergen (mother of Candice Bergen) plays one of the parents, and Lawrence does a neat turn as a wealthy vamp trying to nail Ryan. This B

movie has an "A" cast.
