| Fluffy film about snobbish sororities is a pleasant trifle easily forgotten...
ANNE SHIRLEY and JAMES ELLISON are the romantic leads in this trifle directed by John Farrow about a nice young girl who learns her lessons at college the hard way--by attempting to fit into the sorority scene when she comes from a humble background and is not a girl of wealth as the other girls are falsely told.

Shirley and Ellison make a pleasant twosome but their roles are one-dimensional after they meet in the usual Hollywood "by accident" way. He's the campus hero who helps her learn the ins and outs of campus life. Anne Shirley made this film the same year that she tested for Melanie in GWTW and her sweetness appears natural here. But, as usual, her roles seldom became more demanding than requiring a sweet presence, limiting her opportunities as an actress.

Surprisingly, Dalton Trumbo wrote the script and Nicholas Musuraca was behind the camera but it's just an RKO trifle easily forgotten.
