Is there anything less attractive than gum chewing, five-o’clock shadowed, broad shouldered chorus “girls” lumbering around a stage? All-American Co-Ed
begins with the apparant Hasty Pudding wannabes at Quincton college parading in a pseudo serious Ziegfeld parody. When the all girl school Mar Brynn derides their show, the frat boys infiltrate the school with one of their own, in hopes of finding a way to get back. The plot is about as well thought out as these costume pants.
Frances Langford, who sings the Oscar nominated song, Out of the Silence
, is the only noteworthy performer of this mercifully short film. Even her song is marred by strangely posed, pajama clad, sing-along sorority sisters.
I promised myself that I would not use the word painful in this marathon--just thought you should know.
