Trivia

Footage from the final football game of the film was taken from the January 1, 1949 Raisin Bowl in Fresno California between Occidental College and Colorado A&M ( now Colorado State University). Only about one minute of the actual Raisin Bowl game is shown in the movie, but in the close-up shots Universal used the uniforms of Occidental (Orange and black) and Colorado A&M (green, white and orange).

Watch it for O'Connor's dance
26 December 2013 | by bderoesSee all my reviews

Right now, you can watch this on YouTube.

While I'm usually an avid fan of Charles Coburn (The More the Merrier, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes), his appearance here could have been replaced by an entirely different type without any loss.

About 34 minutes in, O'Connor does a very good dance, showcasing his grace and athleticism, and making interesting use of his non-dancing male extras.

I'd probably buy this title just for those 4-5 minutes. Universal needs to publish O'Connor's movies on DVD, or at least create a compilation of his musical numbers.
