Frankie (Frankie Darro) and Tad (Jackie Moran) are supposed to bring Bob Terry, rowing legend, to Rawley college, so that the college this year wins the rowing competition against their chief rival, Standish university. But on the day Terry is to arrive he is drafted by the US-army. Frankie and Tad, fearing for their reputation (and their success with the girls) come up with a stupid plan to keep everybody from noticing their failure: They just get Herk (Frank Sully), a naive hunk they meet on the street, to impersonate Bob Terry for one evening, so at least their faces are saved.

Unfortunately, Herk likes to be on campus, especially because Tad's and Frankie's girls (Marcia Mae Jones, Gale Storm) fall for him, and decides to stay for the term. At first, Frankie and Tad are furious and want to use every trick in the book to have him kicked out - until they realize what a valuable addition for the rowing team he is, so they decide to help him through his classes, even though that means their own grades drop significantly (for which they are almost kicked from the rowing team themselves).

Finally, Rawley defeats Standish in the rowing championships just before the police catches up with Herk and arrests him because he turns out to be a dangerous bankrobber on the side ... and everything is back to normal again.

Mantan Moreland plays Frankie's chauffeur (since when do college kids have a chauffeur ?), MArguerite Whitten Mantan's love interest.


One of the lesser films of the Frankie-and-Mantan-series, and one of the few tht breaks with the established formula, throwing the couple in a college comedy instead of the more familiar crime comedy. Plus, the two of them aren't really working as a team here since Mantan is removed from the center of the proceedings. Still his scenes - even if they are few and far between - are the highlights of the film.
