College Swing

Hollywood: Paramount Pictures, 1938. Vintage black and white photograph from the set of the 1938 film. Shown are director Raoul Walsh, explaining a scene to George Burns and his wife (and co-star) Gracie Allen. With a mimeo snipe describing the photo printed on the verso. The only photograph from the set of this film we have ever seen.

Gracie sets up the action in the film by trying to graduate college in order to gain an inheritance. She hires glib tutor Bob Hope to get her through exams, takes over the college, and introduces the campus to wild parties, the Jitterbug, swing bands, and radio broadcasts.
