Product Details

Working-class grocer gal Alice Fisher (Anne Shirley) thinks her post-secondary school life will be spent stocking shelves at her dear old dad's (J.M. Kerrigan) market, when he surprises her with the funds to attend her dream school, Talbot College. Country mouse Alice soon gets caught up in campus shenanigans when an errant article of her undergarments catches the eye of Big Man on Campus Bill Loomis (James Ellison), and the ire of Bill's "pin," sorority queen Neva Simpson (Doris Davenport). While Neva works to keep Alice exiled in the dreary, weepy world of the "dreeps" who don't make the cut, Bill conspires to make the simple lass a hot commodity with the class-conscious society snobs of the sororities. Meanwhile, Alice's roommates, cynical Dotty (Barbara Read) and sorority wannabe Merle (Adele Pearce), provide the Greek chorus to Alice's dilemma. Directed by John Farrow with a screenplay by Dalton Trumbo.
