the setting was in the triangle area of N.C.-it involved 3 schools out of the area (NC State, Duke and UNC but replace Wake Forest with a phantom university called Pinehurst-Bing loved the Pinehurst area-that had to be his idea-was a very entertaining movie.

This movie changed my youthful direction in life. I watched it and it was a very PG moment in my life that I always wanted. A smaller by name & not number college. I then decided to go to a smaller college instead of the super universities my brother and sister went to. I never was ever disappointed in my choices.
Could you please put this on your schedule?

This movie is a "classic"! Is there anyway you could add it to your lineup soon? I've noticed a few repeat movies over the last few weeks. If you take suggestions, this would be a great replacement! Thank you for your time!
High Time with Bing Crosby
- Ken Fure
This is movie an excellent family movie that you don't see made anymore that transcends two generations. I highly recommend this movie to anyone. It is the kind of movie you can watch over again. Unfortunately, I don't think this is on DVD, as I have been unable to find it.
Two hits and a miss
I find it odd that this movie, coming right between Blake Edwards' two HUGE hits, "Operation Petticoat" and "Breakfast At Tiffany's", never really took off. Maybe it was seen as a "teen" movie, but it's way better than that. Check it out.
Bing bridges the generation gap.
The strategy was to pair Bing with co-stars younger viewers would want to see and it worked. I sure as hell wanted to see Tuesday Weld in ANYTHING, and Fabian and Richard Beymer turned out to be quite charming as well. In that era, college was really your first whack at functioning as an adult, so this movie gave kids a non-threatening, wish-fulfillment kind of view of college life which could seem naive to young moviegoers today, but which caught quite well the spirit of the 1950's turning into the 1960's. These kids made Bing seem cool and he made them seem mature. The story of a successful but unfulfilled older businessman finally going to college to try to redefine himself is actually pretty clever, and Bing's personal charm carried the day. Along the way, he got to sing, romance a teacher and do drag, so a good time was had by all. I always have a good time watching this too, all these many years later.

Great movie, I always enjoy it when it's shown. Movies like this aren't made anymore. Needs to be released on home video.

A very good movie. Have wondered over the years why it has never become available on DVD. A true classic with a very good cast. Hope to see it again on TCM in the not too distant future.

This is a very entertaining movie. It was remade as a comedy for Rodney Dangerfield (Back to School).
