High School Hero ★★★

I L<3ve Musicals!

Entertaining and fairly accomplished musical set on the high school football field where the chorus boys of Whitney High line up against the beefcake of Fairfield.

Throw in a 'putting on a show' theme, add a cut-price version of Carmen Miranda, and a dollop of comedy, and you have a decent hour's diversion.

The cast are fairly good and includes Freddie Stewart, June Priesser, Noel Neil, Warren Mills, Belle Mitchell and Milton Kibbee, with Lita Baron as the sultry Chi-Chi.

I enjoyed the jokes and the musical routines, which are not at all bad for a Monogram programmer with next to no budget.
