Storyline

Eddie Cantor hosts with guests actress Adele Jergens, Robert Clary, actor Jimmy Dobson, actress Shirley Mitchell, Doris Singleton, child dancer Sharon Baird, Herman McCoy's UCLA Swing Choir, a cameo from Kirk Douglas, and Al Goodman and his Orchestra. Eddie enrolls at UCLA as a freshman in this musical comedy. He moves on campus and accidentally knocks out the football star, then learns French from student Robert Clary. During the school's Varsity Show, the UCLA Swing Choir sings "Lullaby of Broadway" with a tribute to George Gershin featuring Cantor in blackface. Eddie plays the Kirk Douglas role in a spoof of "Detective Story." Written by Jay Phelps <jaynashvil@aol.com>
