Fast-paced and infectiously funny, Too Many Girls is celebrated for its George Abbott-produced Broadway roots, its buoyant Rodgers and Hart score (including "I Don't Know What Time It Was" and "You're Nearer"), and the movie debuts of three talents from the original stage version: Eddie Bracken, Van Johnson and Desi Arnaz. It's also where Desi met the film's leading lady Lucille Ball, an encounter that threw them both for a romantic 'babaloop' that changed Hollywood history. Their attraction adds extra zest to this exuberant Golden Age musical.
When Connie Carlson heads for college far from home, her overprotective and cautious father hires four beefy bodyguards to watch over her. But soon the big guys get drafted to play varsity football -- leaving Connie free to fall in love.
