We Went to College is a perceptive spoof of alumni "homecoming" reunions. Hugh Herbert plays a daffy economics professor, who invites old grads Glenn Harvey (Charles Butterworth), Phil Talbot (Walter Abel) and Senator Budger (Walter Catlett), among many others, to attend the annual homecoming rally. It isn't long before the three middle-agers jump-start their old campus rivalries, much to the consternation of their wives. Our heroes also try their best to interfere with campus activities, notably the all-important homecoming football game. The finale, in which the inebriated Glenn Harvey stumbles onto the football field to prevent a touchdown, was based on an actual incident, which presumably wasn't quite as amusing as what happens on screen.
