Let other coeds wait tables or shelve library books. Burlesque queen Hot-Garters Gertie is working her way through college one article of clothing at a time! Virginia Mayo and Ronald Reagan headline this rollicking campus musical comedy based on the stage and screen classic The Male Animal. Hoping to leave the daily bump ‘n’ grind behind, gorgeous Gertie (Mayo) enrolls at Midwest State, where she proceeds to complicate the lives of a handsome theater arts professor (Reagan), Midwest’s star quarterback (Gene Nelson) and jealous rival Poison Ivy Williams (Patrice Wymore). It takes a smash-hit student musical, featuring tunes by Sammy Cahn and Vernon Duke, to put everything right.
