Movie Info

This 48-minute Hal Roach "streamliner" represents a rare directorial assignment for veteran Hollywood choreographer LeRoy Prinz, who also produced the film. Johnny Downs stars as Bob Sheppard of Quinceton University, who is appointed by his frat brothers to get even with the snotty sorority gals at all-female Marr Brynn U. This requires Bob to dress up in drag as a "blonde bombshell" and to enter Marr Brynn's annual beauty contest. When he's not flouncing around in curls and crinolines, Bob spends his time romancing pert co-ed Virginia (Frances Langford). The supporting cast ranges from silent-comedy veteran Harry Langdon to leggy newcomer Marie Windsor. The film's four musical numbers (representing approximately 25 percent of the running time!) include the Oscar-nominated "Out of the Silence".

Audience Reviews for All-American Co-Ed

Very enjoyable and lighthearted musical, some good musical numbers, and a couple of forgettable ones as well. Fun cast. Peppy. If you look this movie up through the RT search engine, it can't be found, but if you look up the star, Frances Langford, it is listed under her name. Does anyone know why this happens on this site?
