This book is an excellent, comprehensive resource for those interested in the college-life genre of film. Umphlett gives you just enough to understand the plot of the films, but does not overwhelm you with extremely indepth overviews. He also clearly articulates how historical shifts in higher education are reflected in film, focusing primarily on film and not history. It is a quick read and I really found it to be an excellent resource.
