Prof. John Palmer:
Why don't we take your play and write a musical score for it? I know a couple of boys who could do the songs.
That would be marvelous, Professor!
Prof. John Palmer:
The title's wrong for a musical.
That's no problem. We can always get a title. The main thing is to get away from Shakespeare and give 'em what they want. There's a thought! Why not use that for a title? Give Them What They Want.

when I was young my girlfriend and I would go to the movies everyday to see this movie and stay to see it twice. As you know in 1952 the movie only played for three days.
We simply enjoyed the plot which told the story of Angela who had to work hard to get to college. The fact that she met up with "Professor" was a treat. We loved the clothes she wore, the dances, the Gene Nelson creativity and watching the girl get her due for trying to expose her. Why can't they make movies like this today. I suppose the producers and directors have all passed away and the young ones today just can't sit still long enough to enjoy the simple ways of life in the 1950's the best of times.
