Great unknown tunes
13 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie had some GREAT tunes, and not ones that became classics, these tunes will be new to you. I particularly like the one about going to college that the movie starts off with in the first scene. The movie is not about romantic rivalries between father and son, rather the father does not approve of the effect girls have on his son's grades and does not approve of his son's new fiancé' so he goes to college to sort things out.This is an older movie, but very watchable with none of the glitches that you sometimes see in these older films. It is rather an obscure movie from the early thirties, thus it has not been subtitled. I thought that this was a shame because I missed a few of the words to the songs and I would have liked to have heard every word. The kids were in the room when the movie started. They were on the computer and paying NO attention to Mom's old movie, but when the song about college came on, they drifted over and watched the whole, long song. I hope you enjoy this movie as much as I did. Thank goodness for TNT!
