At Stanwood College, the Phi Beta Nu fraternity and the Nu Beta Phi sorority reluctantly vote to stop dating each other so they can devote more time to their studies. The students' astronomy professor thinks the whole idea is foolish and devises a plan to get the two groups back together. Written by

MGM fluff about a boys fraternity and a girls fraternity that agree to stop seeing each other after they determine that college should be about work and their future and not just fun. A professor hears about this plan and thinks it's a horrid idea so he takes one member from each group, who just happen to be in love, and plans a dance to get both sides back together. If you're looking for anything other than cuteness then it's best to look elsewhere as the story itself is rather silly but there's no denying that the cute aspect works well. Johnny Downs and Eleanor Lynn play the lovers caught up with their "friends" trying to keep them and everyone else apart. We get one good musical number with the two standing under the stars and Downs singing a rather catchy tune. This all leads up to the ending where the two sides are forced together for a school dance. I wasn't impressed with this musical number but there were a few good spots. Overall this here certainly isn't anything people should search out but if you're a fan of the genre and must see everything the studio offered up then you can check this out as it appears on TCM quite often.
