Follow Me, Boys! is a 1966 family film about a traveling musician becoming a Boy Scout troop leader in the Midwest. Lemuel Siddons (Fred MacMurray) has grown tired of his life as traveling saxophone player with a jazz band. He finds a job as a store clerk in a small town, Hickory, and plans on becoming a lawyer. During a town meeting, he volunteers as Scout leader to Troop 1 as a way to become part of the town. Soon, he finds the Scouts are much more interesting than the law. For instance, the town bully Whitey (Kurt Russell) joins up and soon finds a new outlet for his energy and vigor. Lem also starts a romance with Vida Downey (Vera Miles), and finds he keeps forgetting to apply to law school. The film follows the adventures of Troop 1 and then fast forwards many years later, when the first scouts have grown up to be leaders in their own fields. Movie buffs will enjoy seeing Kurt Russell during his child star years, before becoming the action hero in "Escape from New York."moreless
