Young America is not so much a Jane Withers vehicle as a 73-minute advertisement for the 4-H clubs of America. Cast against type, Withers plays a spoiled-brat urban girl who is shipped off by her exasperated parents to work on a 4-H farm. At first, she manages to alienate every one of her youthful coworkers, but she has a change of heart as she becomes more deeply involved in the organization's good works. Our heroine finally proves that she's a good kid withal by pitching in enthusiastically during crop-harvesting time, and by winning a county-fair prize for raising the best Hereford bull. And as a bonus, she finds a sweetheart in the form of handsome farm boy Robert Wilde.
