Description
With boundless enthusiasm and enough jive to meld ‘20s flapper giddiness with ‘40s swing, 1947’s Good News – the feature directing debut of Charles Walters (Easter Parade, The Unsinkable Molly Brown) and screenwriting debut of Betty Comden and Adolph Green (Singin’ in the Rain, The Band Wagon) – is “one of the best of the lighthearted rah-rah collegiate musicals” (Pauline Kael, The New Yorker). Peter Lawford (as a campus football hero) and June Allyson (she’s the brainiac who tutors him) lead a high-spirited cast that includes Mel Tormé and Broadway’s Joan McCracken. And The Varsity Drag and Best Song Oscar® nominee Pass That Peace Pipe stand out among the numbers that are all zip and joy. And the bee’s knees.

    Comments about this product:

    Allyson and Lawford are just the perfect couple in this college-oriented musical, and supporting cast make the whole thing mesh and work. Great musical numbers and lovely costumes.
