All-American Co-Ed (1941): Oscar-Nominated Comedy at Women’s College

Inspired by the noted comedy “Charlie’s Aunt,” this Hal Roach production is a  pale imitation comedy set at a women’s college, involving rivalry with all-male school.

The center piece of what’s a low-budget B-movie is a beauty contest in which a male participates.

The good moments are provided by big-band singer Frances Langford (Song and Scoring were Oscar-nominated) and the brilliant movie clown, Harry Langdon.
