Gracie Allen and her kooky cronies turn a staid small-town college into an all-singin', all dancin', jumpin' jitterbuggin' joint in this fabulous all-star, old-school musical! College Swing opens in 1738, as Gracie Alden (Gracie Allen) fails for the ninth time to graduate from the college her illustrious grandfather founded. In his will he leaves the whole kit and caboodle to the first female Alden to graduate within 200 years. And now in 1938, with the deadline approaching, another Gracie Alden (played by guess who!) is determined to pass muster, by hook or by crook.... She does so by invading the college with a bunch of her vintage vaudevillian cronies, including fast-talking sidekick Bob Hope. Immediately the sober halls of academe are transformed into an all-singin', all dancin', jumping jitterbugging joint! Misogynist Professor Hubert Dash (Edward Everett Horton) and his secretary George Jones, played by George Burns, are mortified. They're determined to stop the college they love being ruined by this bunch of halfwits! College Swing is pure, unadulterated, irresistibly gleeful, all-star musical tomfoolery of a sort they just don't (and can't) make anymore! [show more]
