Don't bother
14 January 2002 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

Rather lame as college humor/romance/drama/sport pictures go, though one of the few to use crew as the sport.

Those looking for why Betty Grable was so popular probably should look elsewhere.

Not related to the W.C. Fields 'Million Dollar Legs (1932)'.
