Fun spirited MGM short has an uptight Assistant Dean (Mary Howard) at an all girls school refusing to let the students listen to swing music. A gossiping student informs her that the girls have snuck off to a joint in Atlantic City and when the dean goes there she sees her fiancé performing the music. There were quite a few shorts made around this time dealing with swing or jitterbug and this here is without question one of the more entertaining ones. It's always fun to see this uptight teachers get knocked down a few blocks by realizing music isn't going to make people go crazy. In the end this is really a message picture to those against this type of music but it's a lot of fun from start to finish. The real highlight are a couple musical numbers, which will certainly have your leg shaking.
