Plot

Struggling singer Judy Jones (Leslie) discovers she's entitled to a multimillion-dollar fortune, as long as she can live up to the terms of her late uncle's will. To collect her inheritance, Jones must marry an intellectual genius. Jones ditches her boyfriend, bandleader Tommy Coles (Alda), and matriculates at an elite university for the super-intelligent. On campus, Jones struggles to win the heart of a dashing professor, Bartholomew Williams (Prince).

Reception

Bosley Crowther of The New York Times said, "If you can imagine a combination of a Nineteen Thirties "college musical" and a second-rate silent slapstick shot completely "off the cuff," then you can picture in your mind's eye the Warners' Cinderella Jones, a little package of fluff and painful cut-ups which came to the Strand yesterday. And we trust that you can so imagine, for it would be very difficult indeed to convey a more accurate impression of this nonsensical and amateurish film."[2]
