You Can't Ration Love (1944) as Madge
Because of the war, there aren't enough men at Adams College for all the girls, but Betty (Betty Jane Rhodes as Betty Rhodes) has no difficulties as she has a monopoly on stud-athlete Pete (Bill Edwards). The other girls, particularly Marian (Marjorie Weaver), think this is unfair, so Marian institutes a system of rationing dates. Pete is rated as thirty points and Betty is furious as the other girls bypass the 4-F's and slide-rule geeks to save their ration points to date Pete. Betty drafts him for the Varsity Show, but when the pressure of preparing for the show hurts his studies, Marian volunteers to tutor him and has him all to herself. Scholarly John "Two-Point" Simpson (Johnny Johnston as Johnnie Johnston) auditions and, since he isn't hep to the jive, is laughed off the stage. Betty helps him and soon "Two-Point" is in the groove and makes a hit, and Betty discovers she is in love with him. The faculty cancels the date-rationing plan and Johnnie, whose point value has gone up, thinks Betty is the cause of the ruling and dates Marian for spite. Betty broods and knits booties for her sister's baby, but conveys the impression to Marian that she is to have a baby. Johnnie learns he is the "suspected" father and, thinking it is another of Betty's tricks, plans to leave school. The other girls, led by Bubbles (Marie Wilson), are worried about Betty's future stigma and round up a justice of the peace and Johnnie. Betty confesses the hoax, and the girls start squabbling over the available-again Johnnie, while Betty and Johnnie make use of the still-available Justice of the Peace.

Marathon Pictures is stuck with Billy Doran (Darryl Hickman), Whiz Quiz radio show star but a flop in Hollywood. Ex-child star Tiny Barlow (Jackie Cooper) suggests that the studio remake "Skippy", the film that made him famous, with himself as coach for little Billy. A. J. Colder (Walter Abel), Marathon's Mighty Mogul, agrees. Joan Winslow (Susanna Foster), a contract player who has never had a part, is picked to replace balky Brenda Lee (Ann Gillis) in Marathon's monster musical of the year. Tiny poses as a big shot and takes credit for getting Joan the role. They are soon seen everywhere together as Tiny is taking advantage of her publicity build-up for his own gain, until he suddenly finds out he is in love with her and confesses his duplicity. This occurs when Colder has forbid Joan to see Tiny anymore, directing her to only be seen with important people who can help her career, and Tiny thinks it is because she has dumped him. He enters into a conspiracy with Brenda's agent, Mickey Fadden (John Gallaudet), to make Brenda give up her strike and accept the role Colder gave Joan. She does and Tiny is given the role of her leading man. But he is unhappy about what he has done in costing Joan her big chance, plus his old friend, Georgie Clemons (Jackie Searle) who used to play the mean kid in Tiny's films is also replaced. Faced with the taunts of the production crew because of what he helped engineer and broken hearted about Joan, Tiny walks out on the picture, climbs into his automobile and heads for parts unknown. Little Billy, who adores him, stows away in the luggage compartment. Billy, the high IQ kid, has devised a scheme to set everything right.
