Storyline

Biff Roberts, Tony Williams and Dave Crouse are upper classmen at Southern Military Institute (fictional school based on real school---Virginia Military Instute---in original play and film), and just three months away from graduating as commissioned officers in the U.S. Army. Williams and Crose have girl problems while Roberts, the star pitcher on the school's baseball team, has a different sort of problem, as he is secretly married and his co-ed wife is expecting a child. The other two also have the problem of keeping Roberts in school long enough to graduate and, more importantly, pitch in the BIG GAME of the year, all wrapped around seven musical numbers.

Weak re-make
4 January 2004 | by (Danville, Virginia) – See all my reviews

This film is not bad, but a washed out version of "BROTHER RAT" (1938) that starred Ronald Reagan, Eddie Alber and Wayne Morris, three "rats" who are enrolled at Virginia Military Institute (VMI), a real place. There are never any freshmen at VMI, they are deemed "rats", and the bond between them usually is a lifelong one. This film is a black and white classic that is fondly screend at VMI, in Lexington, to this day.
