Class of '44 Reviews

Sequel to SUMMER OF '42 has Grimes, Houser, and Conant repeating their roles as they graduate from high school. Conant joins the Marines, while the other two enroll at a prestigious eastern university. There the film turns into a routine fraternity story as the boys face the hazing of frat president Atherton in a string of episodic gags. At the close, the film veers abruptly back into high melodrama as Grimes' father dies and the boy is forced into manhood.
