Girl Crazy

Synopsis: Rich kid Danny Churchill (Rooney) has a taste for wine, women and song, but not for higher education. So his father ships him to an all-male college out West where there's not supposed to be a female for miles. But before Danny arrives, he spies a pair of legs extending out from under a stalled roadster. They belong to the Dean's granddaughter, Ginger Gray (Garland), who is more interested in keeping the financially strapped college open than falling for Danny's romantic line. At least at first...

It has fresh air.

And it is not coeducational.

Dad, you can't be serious.

Why, a guy would go daffy out there.

Well, there's a bare possibility

that it might make a man of you.

And another thing,

just so it won't be a shock to you.

There hasn't been a woman out there

since the Civil War.

Well, that doesn't make any...

"Codyville. Two thousand,

eight hundred and fifty feet. "



- Where's the hotel in this town?

- Ain't none.

Well, where do people live?

There ain't none.

Well, could you tell me

where Cody College is?

Down the road, about eight miles.

Well, are there any taxis in the town?

Oh, no, don't tell me. I know.

There ain't none.

- Well, good night.

- Good night.

"Cody College.

Eight miles. "

"Cody College.

Eight miles. "

"Cody College.

Eight miles. "



Having a little trouble?

Why don't you leave it out here

for the buzzards?

Well... Well, I'll be.


- I said, hello.

- That's what I thought you said.

Well, what do people out West say

when somebody says hello to them?

Look, stranger,

why don't you just go away?

Oh, that isn't very nice.

I've been lying under that jumping jack

for a half an hour.

- I'm not in the mood for small talk.

- Oh, excuse me.

I just happened to be in

the neighborhood...

...and I thought I'd drop by

to tell you...

...that you're the best-looking

automobile mechanic I've ever seen.

Traveling salesman?

- What are you laughing at?

- Nothing. I'm just happy.

- You're sure it isn't the sun.

- No, no, it's something about my father.

He sent me out West to get away...

To get away from the girls.

And I find you right out here

in the middle of the desert.

I think it's very funny.

- You do?

- Yeah.

Would you go ahead and have

your own private little joke.
