Normally one associates muscleman Lon Chaney Jr. with horror or crime classics, but it is a delightful change to see him in The Girl of My Dreams as an innocent sophomore, who is finding out that there is more to life than being able to hurl a 16 pound brass ball further than any other competitor. Set on a college campus, this movie has traces of a musical, a sprinkling of action, a few rings of romance and a huge slice of comedy all thrown together in an enjoyable manner by director Ray McCarey. Although the cast seems to be a little over the hill for their roles, laudable performances by one and all more than cover up for minor flaws.
The music is great and it is amusing to see Lon flex his vocal muscles for a change. Predictably the movie ends on a suspense-filled note and equally predictably on a victorious note for the home team, but not before entertaining you sufficiently with some convincing athletic feats. All in all this is an entertaining movie, with a bit of something for everybody and is the kind of movie you would like to witness with the family when its raining on a Sunday morning. Witness this hilarious college-life drama - which if nothing else - promises to evoke nostalgia.
