Original TFD Introduction by Dana Hersey. When all-girl school Mar Brynn slanders Quinceton College as a publicity stunt, the boys' school promptly sends Bob Sheppard (Johnny Downs) to Mar Brynn dressed as a girl. Bob infiltrates the campus, but falls in love with Virginia (Frances Landford), a sweetheart who only wishes to put on the school show. Can Bob restore the dignity of Quinceton and still keep the girl? The movie's cast includes Alan Hale Jr. ("Gilligan's Island"), silent screen star Harry Langdon, and an uncredited Mary Windsor as "The Carrot Queen". Edward Ward's score was nominated for an Academy Award, as was the song "Out of the Silence." (BW)
