Janie is a free-spirited teenager living in a small town. But her father, the local newspaper publisher, opposes the establishment of an army camp nearby. Janie and her bobby soxer friends are excited at the prospect of having so many young soldiers nearby. She dates one of them, which makes her boyfriend jealous.


Unbilled players include Keefe Brasselle, Jimmie Dodd, Sunset Carson, Julie London, Virginia Sale and the Williams Brothers with Andy Williams.


In a contemporary review for The New York Times, critic Bosley Crowther wrote: "The authors of Janie, play and picture, have simply cut a theatrical farce with some kids. And the bluntness with which they have done so provides very little warm appeal ... The performance of Joyce Reynolds in the title role is completely surface and pretentious; she had nothing with which to work."[1]

The film was followed two years later by the sequel Janie Gets Married.
