  • Synopsis
This 1943 film version of the Gershwin's 1930 smash hit is much closer to the original musical than it's earlier rival and has the added attraction of the irresistible team of Mickey Rooney and Judy Garland. A wealthy Manhattanite, fed up with his son's romantic escapades, ships the "girl crazy" budding playboy (Rooney) to a men's-only southwestern university. There, the would-be Romeo falls for the pretty but uninterested dean's granddaughter Ginger (renamed from the original in honor of Ginger Rogers, the part's original player) and saves the school from financial ruin. This eighth pairing of Rooney and Garland includes many classic Gershwin songs such as "I Got Rhythm," "Could You Use Me", "Treat Me Rough", "Fascinating Rhythm," "I'm Bidin' My Time", and "Embraceable You.".
