While on monitor duty at Magnolia Hall's school for girls, poor Anne Shirley (as Natalie Freeman) catches rich Nan Grey (as Linda Simpson) sneaking in at seven o'clock in the morning, apparently after an all-nighter with poet boyfriend Kenneth Howell (as Edgar). Due to Ms. Shirley's reluctant tattling and some squealing from gossipy roommate Dorothy Moore (as Betty Fleet), Ms. Grey's delinquent romance results in an expulsion hearing. Thanks to student government support and her wealthy parents, Grey wins. Then, she plans her revenge against Shirley, not knowing her enemy is really a swell girl...
This film looks like it was aimed squarely at teenagers. Shirley and Grey participate in the usual schoolgirl silliness. Mr. Howell and Noah Berry Jr. (as George) contrast refined and rough well. The young woman look more like aspiring models than teenagers - they have "lingerie" scenes and bounce around, so both boys and girls in the 1930s would have been delighted. The "older" audience is represented by spinsterish 29-year-old teacher Gloria Holden (as Miss Laurel), who has a romance with Ralph Bellamy (as Michael Hendragin). While third billed, Mr. Bellamy's appearance could be described as a cameo.
**** Girls' School (9/30/38) John Brahm ~ Anne Shirley, Nan Grey, Kenneth Howell, Noah Berry Jr.
