Good old Rawley U
As this is a Monogram Picture, cheap sets, newsreel footage and lousy editing are a given. But the cast does try to pull this one through and they only miss by a hair.
Let's Go Collegiate has Frankie Darro, Jack Moran, and Keye Luke as fraternity brothers who receive some really bad news. Darro is on the rowing team and the new anchor gets his draft notice before the big match. So these guys try to come up with a substitute and they do with Frank Sully. One sight of him hoisting a safe and they've got their guy.
The trouble is that he's a lunkhead, but that could be passed over with the explanation of special grades for athletes. Teaching him how to row is another matter, he's got a phobia about water. Sully as the new big man on campus is also scoring with the women, their women like Marcie Jones and Gale Storm.
Let's Go Collegiate is a pleasant enough film, but had it been done at a big studio it sure would have been better.
