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 (as the super-smart co-ed who tutors him) lead a high-spirited cast that includes Mel Torme and Broadway's Joan McCracken. "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.
