Silly swing vs. classical music with Mary Howard as prim schoolteacher...
It's a wonder that June Allyson doesn't turn up in this MGM short at a time when she was doing exactly this sort of thing at Warner Bros. in their Vitaphone musicals.
Instead, we have prim MARY HOWARD as a dedicated basher of swing music who suddenly changes her mind when her sweetheart goes off to Atlantic City where he plays piano in a swing festival. Sharp-eyed moviegoers will recognize PHILIP TERRY as the emcee of the dance festival.
TOM COLLINS is the college professor who harbors a secret passion for swing music while working as a chemistry professor.
Odd little short used a theme later taken and developed into a full-length feature by Warner Bros. when they did MY LOVE CAME BACK (swing music vs. classical) in 1940.
