All-star teen fracas headed by Harve Presnell...Golden Globe winner for Most Promising Actor
Wretched "Let's put on a show!" nonsense. M-G-M wasted some marvelous color film stock on this witless, leering dreck, unredeemed by the presence of co-star Connie Francis and the numerous music acts who pop up against their better judgment. Remake of the Judy Garland-Mickey Rooney musical "Girl Crazy" from 1943 (itself a remake of the 1932 version), two college kids try to help out a bankrupt Reno rancher and his busty daughter, who delivers the mail. When the two guys first meet Francis, wearing work clothes and a low-setting hat, they actually think she's a he (perhaps they flunked anatomy?). Later, when Francis looks into Harve Presnell's heavily made-up eyes and fake eyebrows and feigns a swoon, one can only scoff. Presnell must be the oldest college student in cinema history; with a copper-colored toupee and ascots around his neck, he looks like one of the faculty's veteran members. Francis has a pleasant singing voice--and isn't a terrible actress--but she is defeated by the non-existent script and hopeless, leaden direction. Thank goodness grinning-like-mad Liberace is on hand to save this from the barrel's bottom. * from ****
