Quinceton University student Johnny Downs agrees to a practical joke by gaining a scholarship to girl's college Mar Brynn in drag. But the whole thing threatens to go south as Downs fall for Mar Brynn coed Frances Langford. Of course it all ends with a show in the best Mickey and Judy tradition.
I think that Hal Roach probably had a longer and more coherent version of this film, but it was butchered by editors and probably further sliced and diced for television. Still a lot of funny people like former silent screen star Harry Langdon got some bits in.
Also getting bits in were Noah Beery, Jr. and Alan Hale, Jr. At this time in their careers both Dad Rockford and the Skipper were only known as the offspring of some great character actors. Here they play a pair of lunkhead Quinceton jocks.
All American Coed even got some Academy Award nomination recognition for Best Musical Scoring and Best Song. The song is Out Of The Silence and it truly has not stood the test of time. The winner was The Last Time I Saw Paris which truly has.
I doubt we'll see a director's cut of All American Coed.
