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.

Location shooting was in Palm Springs with large cut outs of saguaro cacti dotted around the set to create the illusion of the desert. With temperatures topping 120 degrees Fahrenheit, and dust from low flying planes from a WWII military airfield nearby, production was plagued with shooting delays. See more »
The white guitar Ginger has in the "Bidin' My Time" number doesn't appear to have any strings in some shots. See more »
This was the highest grossing movie in 1943 and nominated for an academy award . If you like old romantic /comedies , you're sure to like this film . It has 2 of my favorite stars Judy Garland and Mickey Rooney. The movie takes place on a western university . Throw in a spoiled city brat taking a shine to deans daughter and the university about to be closed ( due to lack of funds ) adds up to a funny and delightful movie. You get a little of everything in this movie - great songs , dancing , comedy , romance , cowboys/cowgirls - go out and rope in this movie and enjoy it tonight.
