Clifton Webb recreates his Sitting Pretty role as Mr. Lynn Belvedere, the World's Greatest Genius. Belvedere discovers that he is ineligible for an honorary award because he never attended college. So he enrolls as a freshman in a major university, becoming the target for "hazing" from obnoxious upper class-man Alan Young. The middle-aged Belvedere rapidly builds himself into Big Man on Campus, which complicates his intention of remaining incognito while attending college. Journalism major Shirley Temple likewise threatens to blow Belvedere's cover by writing an article about him for a major magazine. Before earning his college degree (four years' worth of study in six months!), Belvedere plays Cupid for Temple and her estranged boyfriend Tom Drake. Mr. Belvedere Goes to College proved successful enough for a follow-up film, 1951's Mr. Belvedere Rings the Bell.Written by

Clifton Webb an old bachelor male actor played Lynn Belevedere in this movie. He was quite smart and a Genius at that. He knew all the answers. Also as a Hasher in the Girls Sorority house. He could play the piano, cook and teach the girls to waltz. What character and what spunk. I wish I could be like him. He also slept standing on his head in Jail. When the students came to bale him out, he told the Sergeant you ought to try it Yoga. It was amazing all what Clifton did. He was a jack of all trades. I give this movie an "A+." When he hit the pay phone at the police station to call J. Edgar Hoover of the FBI, that was funny. He even removed the handcuffs by himself like Houdini. He said he taught Houdini. All of you readers must see this movie. You will be amazed at Clifton Webb. He didn't take any bluff either. At the end, when he graduated. The Dean gave him his diploma, he had a copy of Look magazine, with a photo graduating, at the same time. This movie is a must see. Good luck you all.
