Movie Info

Neil (Dick Clark) is a new history teacher at high school. He falls for the school secretary Joan (Victoria Shaw). Anne (Tuesday Weld) is the blonde bombshell. Buddy (Warren Berlinger) is tortured emotionally because of his bed-hopping mother. Neil helps out the troubled students through history class, high school dances, and attempts by students from another school to rumble with the local teens. James Darrin sings the title song, and Bobby Rydell sings"Swingin' School." The top musical draw is given by Duane Eddy and the Rebels who pound out "Shazam." Eddy's instrumental of the title song on radio helped put this top box office draw even further on top.
