It may be ungentlemanly to say it, but pert leading lady Gale Storm was nearly 21 when she starred in Monogram's Nearly Eighteen. Storm plays teenaged songstress Jane, who is too young to land a nightclub job but too old to enroll in a prestigious academy of music. She poses as a 14-year-old so that she can be tutored by handsome and talented music-professor Leonard (Bill Henry). By and by, Jane falls in love with Leonard, but dares not admit it lest her subterfuge be revealed. The fun really begins when Jane, lying about her age (again!) to secure a nightclub gig, is ardently pursued by handsome bookie Tony (Rick Vallin).
