College Swing (DVD)
Gracie Allen, Bob Hope and their kooky cronies turn a small-town college into an all-singing, all dancing, jumping, jitterbugging joint in this fabulous all-star, old-school Hollywood musica, College Swing from 1938
The year is 1738, and Gracie Alden (Gracie Allen) of the reputable, rich and powerful Alden family has failed to graduate her high school college, founded by her grandfather, for the ninth year in a row! Instead, the college is left as an inheritance to the first female in the family to graduate within 200 years.
In 1938, another Gracie Alden is now the last girl in the line before the deadline, and is having trouble graduating and with her studies. She hires fast-talking Bud Brady (Bob Hope) to assist her.
Her efforts are being thwarted by woman-hating professor Hubert Dash (Edward Everett Horton) and his secretary George Jones (George Burns), who doesn't want to see their beloved college falling into the hands of a woman like Gracie.
