In this musical comedy, an egotistical ex-college football star had little time for a plain-jane coed while he was in school. When they later find work at the same investment house, he finally begins to notice her, especially since she excels at the job. The boss is about to fire him when he notices that the fellow has a way of charming women into doing whatever he wants. He decides this is a useful talent and assigns the ex-jock to sell bad bonds to susceptible women. The crooked boss then plans to have the fellow take the fall when the con-game is exposed. Fortunately, the jock's female colleague intervenes and the fellow is able to reimburse the women he cheated. He then gets revenge by selling the bonds to the boss's wife. Songs include: "I Wonder Who's Kissing Her Now," "Collegiate," "Doin' the Raccoon," "Fashionette," "Jack and Jill," "How Many Times," "Everything I Do I Do for You," and "If You Could Care."
