The College Co-Eds and the Sea-Sick Athletic Hunk

Our movie opens in small Rawley college, where the rowing team, including Frankie Darro, Jackie Moran and Keye Luke, are looking forward to the arrival of star rowing champion, Bob Terry, who may help old Rawley college get its first championship at the big race coming up. But there is bad news . . . on the eve of his arrival, the boys find out that Terry has been drafted into the military and will not be coming. To make things worse, the boys promised to bring Terry to a big sorority dance that evening, and all of their girlfriends are excited about meeting the star.

The boys decide to find a substitute for Terry and bring him to the dance so that they won’t get into trouble with their girlfriends. While driving around, they spot Herk, a strong man carrying a safe over his shoulder, and convince him to pretend that he is rowing star Terry for one night at the sorority dance. After the dance Herk will go away and the boys will tell everyone that the sports star was drafted into military service and won’t be back.

Unfortunately, our big strong, but less than scholarly Herk is smitten by a couple of young college girls and decides to stay on at the college pretending to be the famed athlete. We can expect a simple, sometimes silly, but always entertaining situation comedy with a cast of beautiful young men and women from 1941, trying to win the big rowing race with the help of a strong, sea-sick hulk of a fellow impersonating a college athlete. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
