Mischief is a 1985 teen comedy film starring Doug McKeon, Chris Nash, Catherine Mary Stewart and Kelly Preston. The film was directed by Mel Damski and written by Noel Black. The original music score was composed by Barry De Vorzon.
In Nelsonville, Ohio in 1956, the relationship between the introverted, clumsy Jonathan Bellah (McKeon) and the nonconformist, extroverted Gene Harbrough (Nash) begins to develop. Jonathan's main objective is to win over the sexy Marilyn McCauley (Preston), in spite of his shyness, while Gene has his own love-life to maintain with his girlfriend Bunny Miller (Stewart)—as well as counseling Jonathan on how to attract women. Gene also has to defend himself from the class bully, Kenny (D.W. Brown), while trying to work out a borderline relationship with his widowed father, who has zero tolerances for his often wild escapades.
Also, some scenes shot in Canal Winchester, Baltimore, Carroll and Lithopolis, Ohio.
