The Hollywood cast included:
Edmund Gwenn as the first col
lege president; William Gargan,
Mary Anderson, aioney uiacK
mer, Dorothy Peterson, Marsha

The movie tells of Miss Bishop's
life in a midwestern university,
from the time she is a freshman
way back in the 1880's, up until
she is the 27 year old honoree at
an alumni banquet. .
It also tells of her romantic
life, which did not bring her hap
piness that teaching did. The day
before her marriage, Miss Bish
op's boy-crazy cousin swipes her
young man and the marriage has
to be called off. The next time
she falls in love, it is with a pro
fessor who unfortunately already
has a wife.
But Miss Bishop makes the best
of it and gets much pleasure out
of seeing her pupils grow up to
be responsible men and women.
William Gargan plays the boy
who grew up with her and al
ways loved her. Sidney Blackmer
and Donald Douglas play the men
