Editorial Reviews

In the same year that a certain band from Liverpool first came to the U.S., moviegoers were encouraged to Get Yourself a College Girl. What made the getting good were musical appearances by the British Invasion's the Dave Clark Five and the Animals, plus the U.S. group the Standells (pre-Dirty Water), the jazz stylings of the Jimmy Smith Trio and the mellow of The Girl from Ipanema by Stan Getz and Astrud Gilberto. In a story laced with early feminist and sexual-revolution sentiments, former Miss America Mary Ann Mobley plays a songwriting coed whose rock tunes appall administrators of staid Wyndham College for Girls. Prolific exploitation-flick filmmaker Sam Katzman (Rock Around the Clock) produces.

Everyone seems to remember this movie for a different reason: Some may like it for Chris Noel (some even thinking they'd seen a new Marilyn...??), others for Mary Ann Mobley or just the pure clean fun of it...

In case you're in for the vintage 1964 music performances shot on 35mm
by e.g. THE ANIMALS (feat. Chas-Chandler/Alan-Price line up), THE STANDELLS (for another of their movie appearances see "Riot On Sunset Strip" 1967; THE DAVE CLARK FIVE (check out THEIR movie: "Catch Us If You Can" 1965); THE JIMMY SMITH TRIO or Astrud Gilberto with Stan Getz (of all settings(!) performing "Girl from Ipanema" on a sound stage complete with prop snow flakes falling...)
here's a playlist, all numbers unfortunately are incomplete/intercut (sound and vision) with audience dialogue etc.:

1. Whenever you're around - THE DAVE CLARK FIVE
2. Blue feeling - THE ANIMALS
3. Get yourself a college girl - Mary Ann Mobley
4. Girl from Ipanema - Astrud Gilberto / Stan Getz
5. Bony Maronie - THE STANDELLS
6. Instrumental - THE RHYTHM MASTERS
7. Comin' home Johnny (aka The animals went in 2 by 2) - JIMMY SMITH TRIO
8. The sermon - JIMMY SMITH TRIO
9. The swim - THE STANDELLS
10. Thinking of you baby - THE DAVE CLARK FIVE
11. Talkin' about love - Freddie Bell with Roberta Linn and THE BELL BOYS
12. Around and around - THE ANIMALS

Producer Sam Katzman sure has his finger on the pulse of America's youth. In previous efforts he defended their right to rock and twist despite the protestations of their disapproving elders. With this film he is championing feminism long before Gloria Steinem burned her bra. No, these ladies are not looking for enacting laws for equal pay for equal work. They want to Watusi! And who better a standard bearer for women's lib than former Miss America Mary Ann Mobley. All kidding aside as camp this is pretty good. Mobley's rendition of the film's title tune is a hoot. The youthful cast is energetic led by Chris Noel, Nancy Sinatra, and Chad Everett best known as that dreamboat Dr. Joe Gannon on "Medical Center". The featured acts(The Animals, The Dave Clark Five, The Standells among others) lip synch their songs admirably. Eric Burdon seemed a little stiff on "Blue Feeling". He recovers nicely for the film's closing number, "Around and Around".

Well-acted story of mid-60's genre; the music played in this movie makes it worth the buy alone. Practically an all-star cast; also the movie keeps the person watching it entertained throughout, so there's not a dull moment in it

Early - Mid Sixties Beach Party Type of Movie - Except on land at a ski resort. Saw it when I was a kid probably 15. Not much of a plot, and probably a geeky type of movie, but a fun one as a kid. Astrud Gilberto Sings her hit song, Girl from Ipanema, w/ Stan Getz / her manager or Partner (music) on Sax. Animals sang, w/ Dave Clark 5 & others.

If you like the music from the early 1960's, you will like this film if you let yourself go and just enjoy it - The Dave Clark Five perform two songs and so does the group The Animals - - - There are quite a lot of songs and all upbeat - this does not have the expected 'dated' feeling and there is also a light-hearted Love story. I like Chad Everett in anything - so I liked this positive feeling film.

I bought "Get Yourself a College Girl" to add to my Chad Everett collection, and this 1964 musical comedy is a typical example of the cheesy movies made in this era. Yes, it is dated now, but it still gives one a good feeling with an exaggerated example of a fun filled college life vacation. The DVD is remastered and is very good quality in both sound and picture. The actors I believe did a reasonable job with their one dimensional characters, and the plot.... well what plot? This movie tho', has great music and I found myself 'getting in the groove', so to speak ! Its a movie with humor, colour and Chad Everett. In my opinion, who could ask for more. Worth watching.

This is an addition to my Chad Everett collection. It is very fun to see all these stars so young, as well as the musical acts. I believe that all of the female leads were also co-stars with Elvis Presley at some point. The quality and sound were very good. It was enjoyable to escape into this film for simple entertainment and the pleasure of seeing so many pretty faces from the past.
