Get Yourself a College Girl is a 1964 Metrocolor film comedy in the style of a beach party movie. The plot involves a college co-ed who tries to balance her time writing songs and dealing with her publisher who tries to pursue her. It was directed by Sidney Miller and written by Robert E. Kent, and filmed at Sun Valley, Idaho,USA.
Turner Classic Movies critic Mel Neuhaus calls it "A curious 1964 hybrid of teen movie musical with pre-feminist overtones as well as a parody of moralistic anti-rock message films." It is notable for the appearance of Astrud Gilberto, the Brazilian singer who sang the international hit song "The Girl From Ipanema", appearing as herself in the film.
Terry Taylor (Mary Ann Mobley) is a senior at conservative Wyndham College for Women and, under an assumed name, a successful pop songwriter. After her publisher Gary Underwood (Chad Everett) unknowingly exposes her career, Wyndham's board of trustees—including the college founder's grandson, California State Senator Hubert Morrison (Willard Waterman)—condemns Terry for indecent behavior
To distract herself from a possible expulsion, Terry, her friends Sue Ann Mobley (Chris Noel) and Lynne (Nancy Sinatra), and their physical-education instructor Marge Endicott (Joan O'Brien) travel to Sun Valley, Idaho for a Christmas-break ski vacation. There they meet Gary and his artist friend Armand (Fabrizio Mioni); Senator Morrison, who wants to solicit the youth vote; and Lynne's husband.
The Dave Clark Five, The Animals, and other musical acts perform in the background as Gary and Armand romance Terry and Sue Ann, respectively, while Lynne and her husband spend the entire vacation in their room. Senator Morrison courts Marge and shows that he is a talented dancer, but an embarrassing newspaper photograph threatens his reelection. The others demonstrate his support among the young by holding a successful telephone poll with musical performances.

Editors note: With such a plot how on earth did this movie get made?
Tall and tan and young and lovely
The girl from Ipanema goes walking
And when she passes, each one she passes
When she walks she's like a samba
When she walks, she's like a samba
That swings so cool and sways so gentle
That when she passes, each one she passes
Oh, but I watch her so sadly
How can I tell her I love her
Yes, I would give my heart gladly
But each day as she walks to the sea
She looks straight ahead, not at me
Tall and tan and young and lovely
The girl from Ipanema goes walking
And when she passes, I smile, but she
Doesn't see. She just doesn't see
No, she just doesn't
The collaboration of Stan Getz, Astrud Gilberto, Jõao Gilberto, Tom Jobím, Sebestão Neto and Milton Banana on the studio recording of A Garota de Ipanema created a subtle, light and airy swing that carried listeners along as if they were riding a wave. Afterwards came at least a hundred regrettable covers, all of which tried to recreate that sublime groove and the magic of the moment; and all of which failed miserably. The harder they tried, the worse it got: They pushed the tempo, they created overblown orchestrations, they hired batteries of percussionists, but none of that managed to capture the understated power that Stan Getz and Astrud Gilberto commanded with such seeming effortlessness.
See how the Saxophonist (Stan Getz) is credited in the title? Kinda showed how people respect these instrumentalists back then. Nowadays you don't see that anymore – the only time is when a song is featuring a DJ.
I'm 64 years old and as a kid always loved this song. Now I know background better cuz I'm older. astrud Gilberto is in her 80s. There's no comparison from then to now. There's nothing like this out today.
She was certainly a singer, professionally and otherwise. Do you perhaps mean she wasn't so much of a performee for video? Look at music videos back then they're all horribly awkward compared to what we see these days.
It is a masterpiece, the equivalent of a "Monalisa" painting in "pop bossanova music", she is an extension of Vinícius de Moraes and Antônio Carlos Jobim, her singing goes in completely harmony with the musicians, the music and the lyrics, like a flute with an human emotional feeling and it's pure bossanova, with the real intentions of fusion between seduction and melancholy
Is it just me..., or does she sound like a smoother Grace Slick...? She really does though... the tone, the accent, and the flow of the voice especially when she hits those notes 🙂In fact.... she's practically the Brazilian.. Grake Slick, plus they're only a year a part in age😁 Grace born 1939, Astrud born 1940 🙂
This song brings me right back to the blistering hot summer of 1964 when the 45 RPM single version was released and played on top 40 AM radio stations everywhere. It's nice to hear this slightly different arrangement in comparison to the single with the vibraphone leading in.
This is so funny--there is snow outside, and a Christmas tree in the background when she is singing, but all of them are dressed with NO pants or skirts--showing their legs, only wearing body suits--or one girl in shorts. Why?

When this was first recorded, Astrud was the only one in the studio who could speak English well.
So, English was not her first language.
Vinisius de Moraes wrote this when he first saw 17 y/o Heloisa Pinheiro walk past the bar/coffee shop he visited in Ipanema
, and the rest is history.
The song also made he famous, she is now 72 and still looks beautiful.
