The always-welcome Elyse Knox and her All-American footballer turned broadcaster husband Tom Harmon appear together in this film but are not romantically involved, as she is the co-ed "sweetheart" of the title and he coaches the Varsity rowing crew. Some source describes Miss Knox as a B-actress. A more apt and better description would be one that describes her as an Actress who never got out of B-movies. This one is about half plot and half music but the plot is stretched pretty thin to cover 35 of the 75 minutes when it essentially boils down to: a couple of gamblers pressure the local night club(soft drinks only)owner to rig things so the local college rowing crew will lose their upcoming race. End of plot when the cowswain of the home team uses a rabbit's foot to plug the hole the gamblers cut in the bottom of their racing shell. Two of 1945's top hits, "Five Minutes More" and Slim Gaillard's "Cement Mixer, Putti-Putti" are performed, although some people who heard "Cement Mixer" ... Written by Les Adams <>

Sweetheart of dullsville
13 January 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Elyse Knox is the 'sweetheart of Sigma Chi' and she fancies one of the blokes in this film but he doesn't seem interested at first. The cast are all interchangeable and forgettable. There is another plot about a boat race being fixed that runs alongside the main love story.

The first music number gives you hope that you are going to be wowed by a little gem of a film. The song "Five Minutes More" is head and shoulders the best thing about this film. There is also an entertaining segment where someone plays the piano towards the end of the film and a semi-OK song that is sung on the dancefloor by another bloke who is in the film. There is also a peculiar section where a black band play a few numbers - it's weird because they are slightly discordant in what they do and a little hard to stomach. They are good but they aren't very palatable.

All in all, the film is dull.
