Plot Summary

On the campus of Darnell University, fraternity brothers Phill Denning (David Percy) and Pete Donahue (John Waye) are competing to have campus sweetheart Mary Brown (Lois Moran) lead their musical numbers in the college's annual revue in order to collect the money award for the best-written words and music. The talented Paul, along with his friend Skeet (Frank Alberston) put their skills to work developing a routine in which Mary would would have the leading female role and Phil would be the leading man. Mary, with an affection for both Phil and Pete, complies with both requests to be the lead female. But in this academic musical Garden of Eden there is a serpent, the temptress Dorothy Blake who has her designs on Phil. When Mary gets involved in a practical joke directed at the strait-laced Dean of Women, Dean Crockett (Elizabeth Patterson), To keep her silence , Dorothy demands the lead in Phil's play. To keep his sweetheart out of trouble, the dejected Phil hands over his song "Too Wonderful for Words" to the conniving coed and accepts her as his lead. Many complications arise but true love wins the day. Written by Les Adams
