Storyline

Rich kid Danny Churchill (Rooney) has a taste for wine, women and song, but not for higher education. So his father ships him to an all-male college out West where there's not supposed to be a female for miles. But before Danny arrives, he spies a pair of legs extending out from under a stalled roadster. They belong to the Dean's granddaughter, Ginger Gray (Garland), who is more interested in keeping the financially strapped college open than falling for Danny's romantic line. At least at first...

Garland and Rooney, Who Could Ask For Anything More???
20 January 2005 | by (Philly) – See all my reviews

Forget the plot, in my opinion, this is the best of the Garland/Rooney films.

Mickey is a delight especially in their duet Could You Use Me?

Even better is Judy who steals the show. Her songs from "Embraceable You", "But Not For Me", and "Bidin My Time" are spectacular.

She also looks absolutely beautiful throughout the movie.

The highlight of the film is Judy singing the outstanding "I Got Rhythm". The vocal strength shows why she was the best singer of her era!!

An absolutely must see film!!
