Editorial Reviews

A star-studded cast embarks on a collegiate romp in this campus comedy directed by Raymond McCarey, prolific director of Our Gang and Three Stooges shorts. Larry Haines is the "Big Man on Campus" at Rawley College - just ask him. He's a star athlete, the girls adore him, the guys all want to be like him. He's a shoo-in for the annual "Joe Senior Contest" sponsored by the college paper, or so he thinks. In order to teach him some humility, editor Spec Early has sabotaged the voting so that Larry comes in a distant second. The unaccustomed defeat throws Larry into a tailspin at exactly the wrong time: just before the big inter-collegiate athletic meet against hated rival Stanton University.

Many of the young actors on hand were on the cusp of screen stardom: Sterling Holloway, who plays Spec, appeared in Frank Capra's Meet John Doe (1941) and Lewis Milestone's World War II classic A Walk in the Sun (1945), then found later fame as the voice of the beloved Winnie the Pooh for Walt Disney. Arthur Lake, who plays Larry's pal Bobby Barnes, would become the quintessential Dagwood Bumstead in over two-dozen Blondie comedies. Lon Chaney Jr. (billed under his real name, Creighton Chaney, would achieve fame in Of Mice and Men (1939), then become a horror legend in The Wolf Man (1941) and subsequent screen chillers. In an amusing bit of trivia, George Waggner, who directed Chaney in The Wolf Man, is credited with writing the story, screenplay, and lyrics for Girl O' My Dreams.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Nice Oddity July 25, 2006
By Ejaz
Format:DVD
I'm the first to admit that I like strange little old movies. I tend to shy away from the classics and seek out odd little genre films. This one certainly qualifies. It has lon chaney jr as a high school dude trying to win the big game in order to win the heart of a girl he likes. What makes it interesting is putting a classic horror movie actor into this role. It changes the whole dynamic of hte film and turns what could have been pedestrian into something wonderful.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lon Cheny Jr In A High School Romance May 24, 2006
By jen
Format:DVD
This is one of the strangest and sweetest movies I've seen in a while. It has Lon Cheny Jr - the guy who played The Wolfman - as a high school athelete with a crush on a girl. He also needs to win the big game (of course) while finding a way to romance his lady. There are many funny moments, but I watched it to see the big kiss at the end. It plays like many modern high school romances, but doesn't talk about sex and is much more family friendly than most.

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent example of McCarey's skills. May 2, 2006
Format:DVD
"This is one movie for the whole family. Lighthearted and entertaining, it reminds me of my college days, when life on the campus was simple and full of wholesome fun. I enjoyed it and I know that everybody who treasures his or her undergrad days will be entertained as well."
