'Zig me baby with a gentle zag.' This amiable relic from the Swing era has the usual pompous authority figures trying and failing to stop the music - though the absence, despite the college setting, of any character much under 30 marks the picture off from later rock/pop equivalents. Dmytryk, clearly bursting to get off the B-picture treadmill, makes rapid work of the idiotic plot and concentrates on the numbers, which he stages as inventively as a meagre budget and schedule allow. European exile Planer (cameraman for Murnau, Ophuls) gives it a classier look than the material merits.
