Product Description

Her First Romance (1951)


Seymour Friedman


Albert Mannheimer (screenplay), Herman Wouk (story)


Margaret O'Brien, Allen Martin Jr., Jimmy Hunt
Former child star Margaret O'Brien is Betty Foster, the "all growed up" heroine of Her First Romance. Hoping to rendezvous with handsome teenager Bobby Evans (Allen Martin Jr.) at a fancy summer camp, Betty bamboozles her parents into sending her there. Once she's arrived, Betty proves her devotion to Bobby by committing a robbery on his behalf. She reasons that since she's robbing her own father's safe, her crime is none too serious. Boy, is she wrong! A curious blend of comedy, melodrama and sentiment, Her First Romance failed to establish Margaret O'Brien as an adult box-office favorite, though the film itself is easy to take. Featured in the cast are Jimmy Hunt, of Invaders from Mars fame, and future TV-series perennial Elinor Donahue. Margaret O'Brien's parents are played by Ann Doran and Arthur Space, who'd later be reteamed on the weekly TVer National Velvet.

  1. Hard to find DVD 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Jul 11th 2017

    This movie was filmed when she was 13 and at a new studio. Margaret is always worth watching as many feel she was the finest child actor ever. However I have to agree with the TCM review that the writing talent was not up to the MGM standard that she was used to. Still, I have yet to see a Margaret O'Brien movie that isn't worth watching, if only to see her acting. She is obviously quite "mature" for her age so it is easy to see why MGM was willing to let their child phenom out of her contract.

  2. fun watching 5 Star Review

    A good Margaret O'Brien movie, her first as a "grown up" (or nearly grown up). It had an interesting plot.
