| The amazing thing is that someone must have thought this was a good idea!
This is a very, very contrived film with a very weak story idea. Considering what great films Warner Brothers usually made, the plot is amazingly poor. It's not surprising, then, that the studio held this film for a long time before it was released--as apparently they, too, knew it was a seriously flawed film.

The film begins with some radio show that is looking for lost people--and in this case it's the missing heir to a $10,000,000 fortune. When Judy Jones (Joan Leslie) is located, she learns that the money isn't hers yet--she must be married by Saturday to a man of genius IQ or the money is to be given to a museum. The problem is that the only guy who might marry her is a bit of a clod--and certainly NOT a genius (Robert Alda). So, Judy decides the best place to find a smart guy is the local technical college and she manages to charm her way into be admitted to school--even though it's an all-male campus and Jones is a complete idiot (I'm talking almost a Gracie Allen-level idiot!). Will this moron get a guy by the deadline...and will the audience even care? Considering that the leading lady is annoying, dumb and pretty self-centered, I sure didn't.

This film proves that even with wonderful character actors like Cuddles Sakall, Ruth Donnelly and Edward Everett Horton you CAN make a bad film. Unlikable characters, a contrived plot, bad writing and unnecessary singing make this a real dud.
