Cornelia and Emily, at college in the early 1920s, have triangle trouble with their beaus. Their affairs become entangled with those of a chance-met, kindly bootlegger. Much of the humor derives from pre-Roaring Twenties naivity. Written by

Amusing sequel to "Our Hearts Were Young and Gay"...
Amusing, but not nearly as funny as the first adventures of Cornelia Otis Skinner and Emily Kimbrough in the previous '44 outing which told of their adventures on a first time trip to Paris in the '20s.
This one is a milder sequel with less interesting complications when they enroll at Princeton and enjoy the attention of a bootlegger (BRIAN DONLEVY) and some handsome college boys.
BILL EDWARDS, JAMES BROWN, WILLIAM DEMAREST--and in a small role, FRANK FAYLEN as a Federal agent, are adept at handling the comic situations with finesse. The script by Melvin Frank and Norman Panama is not quite up to the standards set by "Our Hearts Were Young and Gay", but as the girls on the prowl, GAIL RUSSELL and DIANA LYNN are still delightful to watch and BILLY DE WOLFE has fun with his role as a madcap Frenchman.
It's a pleasant, old-fashioned trifle that should please those charmed by the original film.
