Bad luck and box-office busts have knocked the wind out of Broadway producer Chuck Daly (Dick Powell). But when the kids from his old college ask him to help out on their varsity show, it might just provide the push to get him back on track! The kaleidoscopic musical numbers come courtesy of legendary choreographer Busby Berkeley, and a cast of comely coeds.
Description by Warner Home Video:
Broadway impresario Chuck Daly (Dick Powell) has suffered through a string of flop. But the kids at his alma mater don't know that. They're counting on Chuck to turn their varsity show hash into a smash!
Powell leads an A+ cast of coed cuties and BMOC, including film-debuting sisters Priscilla and Rosemary Lane and fluty-voiced comic character star Sterling Holloway, in this exuberant college musical. Can Chuck save the show' Well, with Busby Berkeley creating and directing a rah- rah, football-themed finale featuring high-style overhead shots, kinetic camerawork and hundreds of dancers terpsichoring away on a 50 ft. by 60 ft. staircase, you can bet everybody graduates summa cum zowie!
