| Butterworth Flunks The Team
Philosophy Professor Charles Butterworth just can't get into the school spirit. He's gone and flunked the entire rowing team and their world tour is canceled. What to do, but bring Butterworth along on the Student Tour and tutor them and give them makeups before the big match at Oxford. And who do they get to room with Butterworth, none other but rowing trainer Jimmy Durante.

Probably with a better script the team of Butterworth and Durante might have done better, but this was a slapdash affair that MGM put together. The love interest is a Cinderella story involving team captain Phil Regan and Butterworth's daughter Maxine Doyle. What a difference taking off your glasses can make as Clark Kent would be the first to tell.

MGM house songwriters Nacio Herb Brown and Arthur Freed contributed a most unmemorable score. Jimmy Durante wisely had his own, I Say It With Music interpolated for his number. The main song in the film was The Carlo, a big singing and dancing number that Nelson Eddy sang. Eddy was being showcased as a possible new leading man and would be the following year in Naughty Marietta with Jeanette MacDonald.

Student Tour is all right and entertaining, but could have stood a lot of improvement.
