This film is one of Hal Roach's "streamliners" that was made during the 1940s. A wild opening credit sequence puts the titles over some gorgeous legs. When the credits end, the camera moves up to reveal that the legs all belong to guys! Yes, this cute comedy does bear a certain resemblance to the later, more famous, "Some Like It Hot", in that Johnny Downs, our hero goes undercover in drag at an all-girls school. Frances Langford is along to supply some pretty singing, and there is a production number at the end which is reminiscent of Ziegfeld. This is one more film in my Mill Creek musical compilation. These films are underrated gems which deserve to be seen.
