She's Working Her Way Through College is a 1952 American comedy film produced by Warner Bros. A musical comedy in Technicolor, it was directed by H. Bruce Humberstone, and starred Virginia Mayo and Ronald Reagan. She's Working Her Way through College is adapted quite loosely from the 1942 film of James Thurber's and Elliott Nugent's First Amendment comedy/drama The Male Animal that starred Olivia de Havilland and Henry Fonda and which, in turn, was based on the 1940 Broadway play of the same name and written by the same authors.[2]

Angela Gardner (Virginia Mayo) is an exotic dancer who decides to improve her mind; she enrolls in a college where Professor John Palmer (Ronald Reagan) teaches English. There is an old rivalry between the bookish Palmer and onetime college football jock Shep Slade (Don DeFore). When the college trustees oppose Angela's presence on campus, Palmer staunchly defends her right to an education.[3]
