Get this classic film on DVD
13 December 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this film a few years ago on television and loved it. Having been a member of a fraternity in high school, I was quite impressed with its topic: Life on a college campus and pledging to enter a sorority. The best roles (and I find these the closest to real life characters) go to Jeffrey Hunter, as the fraternity snake, and Jean Peters, as the fashion conscious snob that demands "perfection" from rookie Jeanne Crain. The acting in general is superb (an impressive cast was assembled that includes Mitzi Gaynor, Helen Wescott and Nataly Shaeffer of Gilligan's Island, among them), but Peters and Hunter do the greatest job. You could see their potential as actors that early in their careers (no wonder they went on to become top stars in the 50s). Jean Negulesco's direction is nimble. It moves from comedy to drama with ease and allows us a peek into sorority life (which, I agree, has not changed much since those years). The movie is in glorious Technicolor and very well photographed. PLEASE, get it into DVD. This is a true classic!
