This film's initial telecast took place in Minneapolis Sunday 21 July 1957 on KMGM (Channel 9); elsewhere, its age and lack of sponsor interest in collegiate life of the older generation three decades past aroused little interest, and it was infrequently taken off the shelf, and then only in the less predominant markets. It first aired in Norfolk VA 14 August 1957 on WTAR (Channel 3), in Honolulu 7 December 1957 on KHVH (Channel 13), in Phoenix 20 July 1958 on KPHO (Channel 5), in Portland OR 26 September 1958 on KGW (Channel 8), in Spokane 6 October 1958 on KHQ (Channel 6), in Miami 16 November 1958 on WCKT (Channel 7), in Akron 9 December 1958 on WAKR (Channel 49), in Kalamazoo 18 July 1959 on WKZO (Channel 3), in Greenville SC 17 August 1959 on WFBC (Channel 4), and in Louisville KY 24 August 1960 on WHAS (Channel 11). It now resides in the Turner Classic Movies film library and gets an occasional airing on cable TV on TCM, much to the delight of today's vintage film enthusiasts, who relish the opportunity to journey back to the talking, singing, dancing 1920s in their time machines.

SO THIS IS COLLEGE is a great early talkie-musical
SO THIS IS COLLEGE is one of those movies that has such an antique look to it you can't help but to stop and see what it is when you're flipping through the TV channels. It is a pretty good musical. The cast works well. Max Davidson is a great Jewish character actor. I recall seeing him in some of the early Laurel and Hardy silents. This film from 1929 gives an interesting look at college life in the late '20s. It's a lot of fun. It includes a big football game sequence. Robert Montgomery stars, in one of his earliest film roles.
