Rich kid Danny Churchill (Rooney) has a taste for wine, women and song, but not for higher education. So his father ships him to an all-male college out West where there's not supposed to be a female for miles. But before Danny arrives, he spies a pair of legs extending out from under a stalled roadster. They belong to the Dean's granddaughter, Ginger Gray (Garland), who is more interested in keeping the financially strapped college open than falling for Danny's romantic line.

After Busby Berkeley finished directing the finale ("I Got Rhythm" number, which was filmed first), he was fired by producer Arthur Freed and replaced by Norman Taurog.

Judy and Mickey, one of the best team-ups in the history of motion pictures, team up again in this rather fun musical. With Tommy Dorsey and his band there, and with Gershwin-composed songs, really, what more can you ask? I consider Judy's rendition of "But Not For Me" to be one of her best songs.
He's (Danny Churchill Jr. - Mickey Rooney) the playboy, who fools around with girls too much and is sent out west to a "all boys college- Cody College- to reform" He did not even reach there yet when he saw two legs sticking out of a stalled car. Even in jeans, they could be none other's than Ginger Gray, the granddaughter of the dean of Cody. He tries to get her hand in love, but to no avail. She's just laughing at the way he is trying to adjust to western life. He can't ride a horse correctly, and looks ....well, weird in Western clothing. When Danny finally wants to quit, Ginger drives him to the train station. He tries, for one last time, to convince her in a song, but she rejects him continuing the song. When she drops him in the station, he decides to walk back because of his love for Ginger. As the two fall in love, the college receives news that it is closing down. Should Danny stay to save both Ginger and the college? Or should he take Ginger and run back to New York and his former college, Yale? Find out in this exciting video.
