Great fun with Helen Kane!
31 December 1998 | by ( – See all my reviews

Helen Kane steals the whole show at Pelham College. She does the "Prep-Step" with Jack Oakie and watches the boys from a tree . .. until she gets caught.

Lots of good songs. Nancy Caroll sings "My Sweeter Than Sweet" and Helen sings "He's So Unusual" later made famous again by Cyndi Lauper.

They used to show TV prints of this one but now . . .who knows where it is. Paramount films are disintegrating fast.
