Did You Know?


This was the first of only two Bud Abbott and Lou Costello films produced by their longtime writer John Grant. See more »


The film's title is a misnomer. A "co-ed" is a female student attending a gender-mixed college -- but Bixby is an all-girl school and therefore none of its students are co-eds. See more »


Oliver Quackenbush: I really don't like dancing because it's nothing but hugging set to music.
Woman in Trailer: What don't you like about it?
Oliver Quackenbush: The music.

Costello without a stuntman
1 October 2007 | by (California, USA) – See all my reviews

FINALLY Costello does something physically brilliant without rear-projection. Originally I did not want to bother with a review of this cute little piece of fluff, but I have to respond to the reviewer who thought the basketball episode was fake. ONLY the final throw is a matte-job, and this is SUPPOSED to be goofy. You can stop-action through all the other shots Costello makes and it's really him and the ball. Although the movie should have been better written, this turns out to have the most fulfilling Costello scene in all the 8 movies of Volume 1 and the first 5 of this volume (I haven't watched the last 3).

My two criticisms of the film itself are that some of the songs are boring, and the ending makes no sense. But it does have the Dance Escorts vaudeville scene, Car 13, Rolling the Dice, a song and almost-dance with Costello and Peggy Ryan, Under Covers sketch, Costello's version of Oyster Chowder, and some great solo dancing by Ryan. And personally, I liked the violin concerto because the close-ups show so well how cleverly a violinist must negotiate this piece.
