The GI Bill brought more mature freshmen to college after WWII.
Jeanne Crain is the little girl whose father is worried about when she becomes a college freshman. Veterans from WWII use the G.I. Bill to attend college, and although one might think they are the ones she needed protection from, it turns out that they protect her from the immature guys her own age. Dale Robertson is her main protector. In the process of taking care of her, he manages to impress her with what college should be about. The emphasis was on learning something worthwhile, and keeping the partying and fun in perspective. He had a positive influence on her, and me as well.
I am disappointed that this movie has never been made available on videotape, at least as far as I know. I would really like to see it again. Perhaps someday they will get around to taping it, but it doesn't look very promising.
