Description by OLDIES.com:
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, 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.
GET YOURSELF A COLLEGE GIRL tries so desperately to be "hip" that it resembles all those TV comedy sketches where 70-year-old Bob Hope plays a pot-smoking hippie. When it is discovered that prim-and-proper college student Terry (Mary Ann Mobley) writes suggestive folk songs in her spare time, she is expelled. Fortunately, Terry is rescued by pompous senator Hubert Morrison (Willard Waterman), who hopes to attract young voters by aligning himself with the "in crowd." This is the sort of film in which college co-eds are played by the likes of Chris Noel and Nancy Sinatra. The chief saving grace of GET YOURSELF A COLLEGE GIRL is that it preserves on celluloid such 1960s favorites as The Dave Clark Five, The Animals, The Jimmy Smith Trio and Stan Getz, not to mention such one-hit wonders as Freddie Bell and the Bell Boys.
