Summary
"Joe E. Brown goes from bashful botanist to the fastest man on campus in the collegiate Pre-Code comedy Local Boy Makes Good, costarring Dorothy Lee. The shyest student at Ohio University, botany major John Miller (Brown) spends his time drafting love letters to beauty contest winner Julia Winters (Lee), pretending he’s the school’s top track star. These are love letters he never intends to send. So when his cleaning lady accidentally mails one of his notes and Julia promises to attend the next race, John - who’s never been on a track in his life - has no choice but to enter the race if he’s to win the girl and the track meet."--Back of container
