Unique collegiate musical/murder/mystery yielded one of the top songs of the'40s--"I Don't Want to Walk Without You"!
1 August 2001 | by (New York City, USA) – See all my reviews

A unique Paramount 'B' picture, "Sweater Girl" was often telecast in the early 1960s, then vanished along with others of its under-appreciated genre. Ostensibly a "quickie" campus musical about students preparing to put on the big school show, it suddenly takes an unexpected turn into a dark, disturbing murder-mystery as these cleancut kids are methodically being killed off by...Who? A one-of-a-kind film sparkling with a buoyant young cast (Eddie Bracken, June Preisser, Kenneth Howell, William Henry, etc.), a craftily-developed plot of a sinister killer-on-the-loose (you'll never guess the identity or motive of the murderer), a surprisingly effective amount of eerie and chilling moments, and...As for the musical interludes, the songs were written by two then-unknown composers, Jules Styne and Frank Loesser Thanks to them, and a recording by a fledgling crooner named Frank Sinatra, "I Don't Want to Walk Without You" emerged as one of the biggest hits of its day, and was in large part responsible for putting these three musicians on the map. The time is long overdue to make "Sweater Girl" again available to movie-lovers. Aside from historical interest, it's an unpretentious, humdinger of a thriller in its own right. I don't want to spoil anyone's fun by giving away the ending but--POSSIBLE SPOILER--never trust an embittered old woman helplessly confined to a wheelchair but seething with hatred. . .
