I absolutely love this film. Made in 1947, it's set in the 1920s in an American college called Tate - a sunny, fun-loving place. The story revolves around the romantic affairs of students, June Allyson, Peter Lawford, Joan McCracken, Patricia Marshall, and others including a young Mel Torme. Studious Connie (Allyson) is in love with football star Tommy (Lawford) but he only has eyes for glamorous new girl Pat (Marshall). No need to tell you how it turns out - this is a musical after all - but there is a lot of fun along the way with some great scenes including Tommy's French lesson, Connie and Cora's trick on Pat, and Babe (McCracken) trying to ditch her jock boyfriend for shy Ray McDonald. The musical numbers are also terrific. I couldn't pick a favourite but I love Peter Lawford's "Be a Ladies Man" (his singing is not always 100% in tune and his dancing won't give Fred Astaire any sleepless nights but he really is impressive in this film - and you don't mind that he's an upper-class English all-American boy!), "Lucky in Love", "Pass That Peace Pipe" (Oscar nominated for Best Song - Joan McCracken is a brilliant ball of energy throughout the film and especially here) and "The Varsity Drag" grand finale. If the era of flappers and sheiks was anything like the magical world of this film, you can see why there was already nostalgia for it by the 40s. I can honestly say this is one of the most delightful, optimistic and entertaining feel-good films I've ever seen. For sheer enjoyment it can't be beaten.
