  1. I loved reading Max Schulman's "On Campus" column when I was a college student. Very funny! But he's only known for Dobie Gillis.

    So this was the basis of the TV series? I never knew.

    Maynard G. Krebs was a role model for a lot of us. Great stuff.

    I recently reread RALLY ROUND THE FLAG, BOYS! - a movie I really liked - but it didn't hold up all that well for me.

    Maybe I'll try Dobie next.

    The Dobie novel I WAS A TEENAGE DWARF is more the basis of the TV show than this.

    But Schulman is great. Such a pity that the great comic novelist of his generation is essentially forgotten.

  7. But not by some of us. I love the Dobie Gillis stories and some of the other books.

  8. Nice to see Arnold Roth's work, too.
