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.
