The administrators of Wyndham Girl's College believe their institution is the model of traditional values, proper decorum and girl's deportment. There is however a thriving underground movement at the college of rock music. When the administrators learn just prior to the Christmas break that one of their students, Terry Taylor, is a renowned rock music songwriter using the pseudonym Joanie Harper whose songs contain seductively feminist lyrics, they have to decide how to deal with Terry, an otherwise academically bright student, and this possible scandal to the school. Meanwhile, many of the students head to Sun Valley for the Christmas break. Among those at the resort are the college's benefactor, Senator Hubert Morrison, who is conflicted between what he believes is Terry's immoral stance and courting the youth vote through their unofficial leader Terry, and Gary Underwood, Terry's publisher.

A somewhat better sex-on-the-slopes comedy than, say, "Ski Party" (which was nothing more than "Some Like It Hot" for the "Beach Party" crowds). Mary Ann Mobley has been forbidden to associate with men, but she is swamped with possibilities while vacationing with her prep-school girlfriends at a ski-resort. Pal Nancy Sinatra has been secretly married, and uses the time away to get 'acquainted' with her husband (each of her scenes features Nance in a new nightie, answering her door in perpetual states of marital bliss). Of the musical cameos, my favorite was burly Stan Getz playing behind Astrud Gilberto (WOW!). This sequence alone should snare jazz fans. As a movie per se, the plot is irrelevant and the characters one-dimensional, but as your basic one-box-of-popcorn time-filler it has humor and color. One could do worse! ** from ****
