HERE COME THE CO-EDS starring BUD ABBOTT and LOU COSTELLO, with LON CHANEY, Jr., PEGGY RYAN, CHARLES DINGLE, DONALD COOK, JUNE VINCENT and PHIL SPITALNY and HIS ALL-GIRL ORCHESTRA

Molly (Martha O'Driscoll), her brother, Slats (Abbott), and his pal, Oliver (Costello), are taxi dancers at the Miramar Ballroom. As a publicity stunt, Slats plants an article about Molly claiming her ambition is to earn enough money to attend staid, all-girl Bixby College. Bixby's progressive dean offers Molly a scholarship. Molly accepts on the condition that Slats and Oliver come along too as campus caretakers. But the pompous Chairman (Charles Dingle) threatens to foreclose on the school's mortgage if Molly isn't expelled. Together, the trio, with the help of some new friends, concocts a scheme to raise enough money to save the school. The plan involves a bet on the Bixby basketball team, which is playing in a game rated at 20 to 1 by the local bookie. But the bookie has other plans for their dough and hires a group of ringers to step in for the opponents. All is not lost, at least while Oliver has the chance to turn things around for his friends-one way or another.
HERE COME THE CO-EDS is another joyous romp by two of the best-loved comedic talents ever to appear on the silver screen. This delightful story, along with some terrific musical numbers, make it a fun-filled treat for all ages.
One great attraction in HERE COME THE CO-EDS is seeing Lou Costello in drag during a girl's college basketball game. One of the players is injured and he substitutes. When he's conked on the head he develops amnesia and then Abbott and Peggy Ryan tell him he's Daisy Dimple, the world's greatest female basketball player and he proceeds to act the part. Watch Lou’s basketball work: in his youth, Lou was a crack basketball player who specialized in dead-eye free-throw shooting. He pumped in many of the shots himself during the film's basketball game.

Lon Chaney, Jr. plays the head caretaker and the nemesis of the boys. He gets right in with the comedy and serves as a great foil for Costello, especially in the wrestling match sequence, where he is clearly having a whale of a time.
