Movie Info

Nostalgic and sweet, this tuneful comedy centers on a mother's reminiscence of her wild time as a 1920s teenage flapper. Margie is first seen fully grown telling her stories to her own teenage daughter. Back then, Margie was a typical adolescent, crazy about boys (especially those in raccoon coats) and an expert on the day's fashions. Margie was quite the cat's meow back then and found herself pursued by a handsome young man. Unfortuantely for him, Margie and the other girls only have eyes for the dashing new French teacher. Though busy vying for the teacher's affections, the teens still have time to perform many of the 1920's most popular songs.more

Has there ever been a movie more in tune with the world of a girl's room? King understands that witnessing the heroine's private rituals is as close as we'll get to going inside Margie's mind.

Audience Reviews for Margie


The corn's a little high in this simple comedy but there is a sweetness too.

Super Reviewer

One of my favorite classic film movies. Wonderful story filled with light humor, teenage embarrassments & heartaches, all with the nostalgic setting in the 1920's. I highly recommend this movie to anyone.
