Features Bing Crosby, who is to play a law student, and Joan Blondelle is his love interest. In a dance hall, a mobster shoots another. Worried about cops picking her up, a dancer named Curly flees to a law college where Bing is studying. The chorus girl is afraid the cops will lock her up for just being a witness. In the 1930’s this was actually a common practice to keep witnesses from fleeing, or to protect them from danger from the defendant.
Since girls were a big no no for college dorms, Bing tries to disguise the chorus girl as one of the guys. Will it work? He’ll need to keep her secret from school officials, the cops, and his own fiancee. With a secret like that, you know it won’t take long to leak out.
Hey, what do you know, our leading man isn’t just a law student, he’s also in the music department, imagine that. Bing gets the chance to sing, I’m on My Way to You. A movie producer hunts down the girl in hiding, and wants to offer her a job in films. The studio has ways of getting their starlets out of trouble with the law, so she jumps at the chance.
Bing is still worried over what the dean might have to say, but he is becoming more smitten with the dean’s daughter. Opportunity arises again, so he sings, I Could Sing Your Praises. Time for the jealous fiancee to barge in, and mistake the dean’s daughter for the chorus girl, or at least an intruding lover.
Meanwhile, a thug tries to kidnap the chorus girl, but is saved by Bing, when he clobbers the movie producer, and the gal clobbers the dean. All kinds of good impressions. With the mess as messy as a mess can get, how in the world will Bing dig himself out? Stay tuned to the comic end to see what happens, and who gets which girl, or guy, or job, or whatever.
Bing gets to sing his big hit from 1934, Love in Bloom. You know it has a happy ending, no matter how frustrated Bing’s character seems to
be. Where explanations fall short, a little good natured blakmail might do the trick.
