Somewhat entertaining but oh so over dramatic tale of a poor girl (Anne Shirley) who gets a scholarship at a rich school where she's abused by both students, led by the popular Linda Simpson (Nan Grey) and faculty. The morals of this film are certainly well intended but the film goes over the top on pretty much all levels, which leads to a serious but God awful funny last scene. I enjoyed the performances by Shirley and Grey but wish the material had been toned down just a tad so that you could have taken them a bit more serious. Ralph Bellamy has a couple good scenes and his little dance got a couple laughs. Received an Oscar nomination for Best Score.
