The DeSylva-Brown-Henderson Broadway musical Good News was first brought to the screen by MGM in 1930. The scene is Tait College, where everyone is in a blue funk over the dilemma of gridiron star Tom. Since the only thing he’s ever passed is a football, Tom is in danger of flunking out before the Big Game. Plain-looking Connie is enlisted to tutor Tom through his final exams, and in the process the two students fall in love — much to the dismay of campus vamp Patricia.
