Description by OLDIES.com:
All I Do Is Dream of You. Not a bad preoccupation for singing lovebirds Dobie (Bobby Van) and Pansy (Debbie Reynolds). But they may want to add more to their cranial cogitations. Like dour Prof. Pomfritt's English class. And chemistry of the test tube and bunsen-burner kind. Dobie and Pansy are students at Grainbelt U., where the motto is Learn, learn, learn. Work, work, work. Yet who can blame them for having fun, fun, fun in this musical comedy scripted by Dobie author Max Shulman? Bob Fosse (one year from his breakthrough The Pajama Game stage choreography) plays Dobie's roomie and fellow skirt-chaser, showing wow, wow, wow brilliance with Van in the exuberant You Can't Do Wrong Doin' Right.
A boundlessly energetic musical romance based on Max Shulman's book, that saw the creation of that archetypical girl-watcher Dobie Gillis. Sparkling with big-band tunes, free-wheeling dance numbers and plenty of collegiate high jinks, the success of this picture was enough to earn Dobie a TV series in 1959, where Dwayne Hickman took over the duties that Bobby Van so wonderfully introduced here.
