Budd Schulberg was also fired off the film with Fitzgerald. And it all started with two bottles of champagne that Budd's father, B.P. Schulberg, the former head of Paramount (1925-32), had given to Budd and Fitzgerald as a bon voyage gift at the train station in Los Angeles as they headed east to Dartmouth, Budd's Alma Mater. He did not know that Fitzgerald was a struggling alcoholic. See more »
The previous comments about Co-eds is rather ridiculous as the women in this movie are visiting their boyfriends at Dartmouth, not going to school there. Overall, except for the historic importance regarding Dartmouth Winter Carnival, this movie is awful. Winter Carnival A horrible movie about the Dartmouth Winter Carnival which starred Ann Sheridan, I believe. It was filmed in 1939 on the Dartmouth campus. The script was written by F. Scott Fitzgerald who was drunk the whole time the movie was filmed on campus. Budd Schulberg wrote a great piece about this in his book Writers of America. he was also fired off the film with Fitzgerald. They finished the film, but the background was reflected in it's rather lame production. It includes footage of the old ski trains, too.
