The Wolf Man sings!
1 January 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is a fun bit of fluff about a group of college students and their various pursuits such as rigging the competition for 'The Joe Senior Contest' which determines the most popular boy in school, attempting to win an inter-collegiate athletics competition, and getting the girls or boys of their dreams. Two of the stars, Creighton Chaney (later changed to Lon Chaney Jr) and Arthur Lake, went on to become, respectively, The Wolf Man, and Dagwood from the 'Blondie' series of movies.

I liked this movie a lot more than I expected to. Despite its age, it's interesting to see that some things about being a college student haven't changed all that much. I chortled out loud in surprise at a scene between two pals Bobby and Spec in which they lament that Larry 'is the most popular man in class with the babes'! I didn't know they used the term 'babes' in this sense in 1936! This remark was so 'Bill-and-Ted'-ish, I was half expecting one of them to exclaim 'Dude!' (in fact, Spec and Bobby even look a bit Bill and Ted-ish, one shaggy-haired and blonde and the other dark-haired and gormless).

Includes a few corny songs around a piano, which you will either love, hate or merely tolerate, BUT which are notable for one in which we actually get to see Lon Chaney Jr sing! The Wolf Man sings? Brill! Chaney is also at the youthful top of his condition physically and is actually quite a hunk! Recommended, as an hour spent in pure escapist fun with a cast of likable characters.
