Ruby Keeler Gives Her All For Her Last Film!
24 September 2003 | by See all my reviews

At first I thought this film would be dull. It was actually enjoyable. Ruby Keeler actually shocked me. She was very spunky, energetic, even sexy in this role. Its funny because if you look at her "A" movies she wasn't as spunky and sexy- She was good in those roles but too natural. Maybe, she felt comfortable in this role, even though it was a B movie and not considered much. Sweetheart of the Campus is a swing movie. Ruby Keeler seems at ease in this role, and at age 31. She is just as fast and rhythmatic as ever. Ozzie Nelson is very talented swingmaster and his wife Harriet has a wonderful voice. She's a great Big Band vocalist. I love those deep, husky, voices. But this film is fun. Of course it isn't as good as 42nd Street, Colleen, Gold Diggers of 1933, and Footlight Parade, But its enjoyable. But, Ruby Keeler really surprised me. I guess she wanted to give her all for her last film. Maybe, if she would of had the same screen presence as she did in this film, she would of continued to be successful in A pictures. Ruby Keeler makes this movie enjoyable. She's really a great tap dancer. People underestimate her dancing. If you get a chance to see this film, you'll see she's good and she should be ranked with Ann Miller, Eleanor Powell, and Ruby Keeler. I don't know what got into her in this film but she was SWINGIN. One thing that help Ruby Keeler to success is her naturalness and her presence. She has a presence, you can't help but look at her. Ruby dances quite a lot in this film and she lip-syncs to a song called Tap Happy- which I think would of suited her voice fine but instead the studio dubbed her voice. But whoever is singing the song has a nice voice. But that's another funny thing. Ruby Keeler never was dubbed in her "A" pictures. But for a "B" movie she's dubbed. But anyway its a fun film when you find this, you'll love it. I still do. They just don't make movies like this anymore.
