Naughty But Nice (aka: The Professor Steps Out)

"The " Oomph" Girl's Greatest Tri-" Oomph"

-- Synopsis:
     A nerdy professor Don Hardwick (Dick Powell) teaches at Winfield College and detests the new swing music that is the craze but somehow reluctantly ends up becoming the best-selling composer on the pop hit parade.

* Features:
     Although Dick Powell is a good singer and dancer, he doesn't sing in this film and the

dance  scenes are cut so you don't see much of him dancing either. Maxie Dorf and Midge Dare along with a young Connie Wydel dance the Jitterbug.
