The Life of a Sorority Girl?
26 February 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Jeanne Crain is accepted in her mother's sorority house, when she goes off to college. And, she finds that life there is not that simple. I went into this film, not expecting much and thinking it would be some lightweight fluff with good looking people. But I was pleasantly surprised to find much depth and reality in the girls' quest to fit in the mix and be accepted by the other girls. The film manages to get the viewer past the feeling of why should I care? with a good performances especially by Jeanne Crain, Jean Peters and Dale Robertson, who was quite good looking in a real way. He actually looks like down-home people, rather than a model with to-die-for looks, like Jeffrey Hunter does, who is here in a small role. The repercussions of actions and hurt feelings make the viewer understand the reality of sorority life and Jeanne Crain must make a decision of what is important to her. This may feel like a b-picture with small production values, but that attribute also helps with its simple and direct effect on the viewer. Watch "Take Care of My Little Girl" and enter the world of young girls trying to fit in, as they mature into young women.
