Andy is going to Wainwright College as did his father. He sees a pretty blonde on the train and he is alternately winked at or slapped every time he sees her. Andy is clueless. On the train Andy meets Kay and Dr. Standish who are both headed for Wainwright. Andy likes Kay, but Dr. Standish also seems to take an interest in her. Things are going well at College with Kay, but the blonde is nice one minute and ignores Andy the next. When Andy finds out that the blonde are identical twins, he tries to help them out with their father but gets caught at their rooming house after midnight. Written by

Young Andy (Mickey Rooney) spends much screen time on a train ride to Wainright College, the same school his dad once attended. On his journey he befriends a woman (Bonita Granville) who's more mature than he is, and who's also headed to Wainright as a Freshman. At the same time Andy gets constantly confused by a pair of adorable identical twin sisters (Lee and Lyn Wilde), one of whom likes to flirt with him while the other prefers to smack him across his face (providing some of the few fun moments). This installment seems to drag at 107 minutes, and once Mr. Hardy arrives on campus there seems to be far too much of everything going on at once with nothing really coming together. It's disappointing that Andy's dad (Lewis Stone) is not prominently featured this time; he's mostly stuck home with a bad case of tonsillitis, and is administered to by a Chinese doctor who was born and raised in Brooklyn (Keye Luke). These sequences don't seem to belong in this picture, and overall this is not one of the more consistently entertaining offerings I've seen from this series.
