Collins College needs a new department head for their science department. Doctors Carter and Zorch consult Thinko, the campus computer, and come up with Dr. Mathilda West, who has degrees in lots of things, but turns out to be disruptively attractive as well. Meanwhile two thugs search for Sam Thinko who is muscling in on the race horse action, the captain of the football team is having trouble not passing out in front of the opposite sex, and Admiral McFortune, a benefactor of the college, becomes attracted to Dr. West, who has a past dangerously close to becoming public knowledge.

Did You Know?


Elektro was constructed by the Westinghouse Appliance Division of Mansfield, Ohio, and only one copy was made. Construction began in 1937 and it was put on public display in early 1939 just before being sent to the New York World's Fair of 1939. It was modified for this film, filling in the circle and putting in the square on his chest for the speaker. The Mansfield Memorial Museum has the original Elektro. See more »

"I never realized the academic life was so lively!"
5 October 2011 | by (Finland) – See all my reviews

This movie has it all. There's Mamie van Doren as a super-intelligent professor/tassel-tosser. There's her pet monkey that plays the piano and the drums. There's a robot. There are gangsters. There's a ten-minute dream sequence of topless strippers. There's a high-speed firetruck driving scene with lots of nice 50s cars. There's Mamie making an introduction to her new students by shooting two revolvers all over the lecture room. Mamie shooting at the camera with a fire extinguisher. Conway Twitty singing rock'n'roll. Vampira making an appearance as a shaggy lab assistant. Brigitte's sister Mijanou Bardot sweet-talking as a French exchange student. What more could you possibly want?

103 minutes (uncut), never a dull moment. This is entertainment. If you are looking for something clever, you don't pick a movie named "Sex kittens go to college" anyway.
