In this second film version of the George & Ira Gershwin Broadway hit, Mickey Rooney stars as a teen-aged playboy who is sent to a western mining school by his father. Judy Garland plays the feisty, lovelorn daughter of the mining-school dean, who falls in love with the hero. Based on the stage musical of the same name, Girl Crazy stars Mickey Rooney and Judy Garland in their ninth of ten pairings, partly filmed on location near Palm Springs, California. This was also June Allyson's feature film debut. Music and lyrics by George and Ira Gershwin.
