Alas, the movie doesn't quite come off, despite (and partly because of) very energetic playing by the principals plus an attractive support line-up of well-known character players.

The direction here, as well as the acting, is often too heavy-handed to puff up such slight fluff. Even some actual location lensing at a real university does little to enhance the credibility of the plot. On the other hand, Iris Adrian as a five-times-married nightclub queen, does deliver a couple of very amusing lines. And even if the movie misses on charm, it's still vintage 1940's fare for dedicated film buffs.
