"Take Care of My Little Girl" is a tale of college and sorority life in the 1950s. Jeanne Crain is charming as the young woman who finds out that being in a sorority is not exactly as her mother described.
Not that Crain has it all that rough - how bad can things be when you've got Jeffrey Hunter and Dale Robertson making eyes at you? Despite the prettiness of the outward package of young stars, the film has a serious message about snobbery, shallowness, and hazing (which still hits the news today).
There are very good performances here from Crain, who is perfect for her role as a college freshman, Robertson, a student on the GI bill, Hunter, a big man on campus, and Jean Peters does a great job as the uberbitch. It's a film rich in college atmosphere.
