Under contract to the Musicraft label, Mel Tormé was "officially" excluded from the MGM Records soundtrack album, although he was heard singing "Be a Ladies' Man" with Peter Lawford and Ray McDonald. On a 78-rpm single, Musicraft issued Mel's remake of one film song: the DeSylva, Brown and Henderson evergreen, "The Best Things in Life Are Free." All of Mel Tormé's prerecordings have been restored on the soundtrack CD from Rhino Handmade. The one Musicraft revamp is included on a Living Era CD entitled "The Velvet Fog." See more »
Not one of the "College Girls" is either dressed or coiffed in anything that resembles 1920s styles. The costumers used contemporary clothing (1947 that is) for virtually all scenes. See more »
When I was 13, this musical about college life was my fav film. Saw it again recently, and it's still good. June Allyson was one of everybody's favorites back then. It's kinda sad that hardly anyone seems to remember her any more, or if they do, they think she was kinda corny.
One of the best musical numbers in Good News is The French Lesson with Allyson and Peter Lawford. Another very enjoyable thing in this film is the opportunity to see and hear a very young Mel Tormé.
