This juvenile comedy stars Virginia Weidler, a former child star struggling to make it in adolescent territory. Joan Lyons (Weidler), the president of her high school's movie star fan club, has a passion for collecting autographs of major stars. Leading her pack of equally zealous girl

friends on excursions resembling a big game safari, Joan stalks New York City train stations and hotels in search of the elusive signature. In the course of events Joan and friends waylay Lana Turner, Greer Garson, William Powell, Walter Pidgeon, and Robert Taylor. An innocent, silly-but-sweet

episodic comedy, THE YOUNGEST PROFESSION is really an MGM tribute to the popularity of its stars, disguised as a vehicle for a newcomer. Weidler never caught on with the public after she "grew up," and she made only one other film, BEST FOOT FORWARD (1943), before retiring from the movies.
