You gotta be a football heroine
I had not heard about this series from Monogram depicting high school life in the
40s. If this is an example I could have stayed ignorant.
For one thing all the cast members who are teens are old. Far worse than is
normally the case where in 90210 in the 90s. Our lead is Freddie Stewart a minor
singer from the 40s.
Our protagonist school has a rivalry with another school in town and they
are anticipating losing, but as a gag one of the cheerleaders goes in drag in a
football uniform and the girl can do some great broken field running. She
might be a secret weapon.
With no less than the governor in the stand it all blows up, but as you can
imagine it all works out as it usually does.
Typical Monogram sloppy editing, I had problems picking up the plot in a few
places. Three Stooges fans can see Curly Joe DerIta in a small part as a high
school kid and soda jerk. Try that one on for size.
