Trivia

Budd Schulberg was also fired off the film with Fitzgerald. And it all started with two bottles of champagne that Budd's father, B.P. Schulberg, the former head of Paramount (1925-32), had given to Budd and Fitzgerald as a bon voyage gift at the train station in Los Angeles as they headed east to Dartmouth, Budd's Alma Mater. He did not know that Fitzgerald was a struggling alcoholic. See more »

Dartmouth coeds in the 1930s? I don't think so
24 March 2005 | by abagamerySee all my reviews

To anyone who knows Dartmouth, the idea that the female characters in this film, which is set in the 1930s, would have been students at the college is laughable. Dartmouth did not accept women as full-time degree candidates until 1972. The film gets it right: Ann Baxter and her sister were visitors to the campus (of whom there are many during Winter Carnival) who competed to be named Queen of the Snows. That said, it's hard to believe anyone not connected with Dartmouth would find anything interesting about this film. But for those who have "the granite of New Hampshire in their muscles and their brains" (as the Alma Mater goes), it is a treat, albeit a very kitschy one.
