Someone tell me what movie this is?

3 posts in this topic

I saw a movie some time ago about a college football player who was failing french.  He winds up being tutored by a girl who falls in love with him.  He winds up engaged to another girl, fails French, but is given one last chance to sort his grades.  He goes back to the tutor, realized he is in love with her an intentionally fails his French exam, but she is the one grading it, and passes him.  There is a scene where they dance around the library naming things in French.  Can anyone tell me the name of the movie?  I've been looking for a few hours now and I can't find it.

It sounds like GOOD NEWS (1947), with June Allyson & Peter Lawford.


In real life, Lawford was fluent in French and had to tutor Allyson (who did not speak French) before they filmed those scenes.
