Tall Story is a romantic sports comedy that features Jane Fonda in her film debut and Anthony Perkins in the same year he starred in Psycho. Ray Blent (Perkins) is a rising basketball star playing college ball and looking forward to a successful career ahead. He's a typical all-american guy who has the attention of every co-ed on campus. Little does he know that he's about to lose the ball when June Ryder (Fonda) ensnares him. She's come to college primarily looking to land a husband, and an athlete will do just fine. Before Ray can recover, June is suddenly enrolled in all of his classes and dominating his study time and social life. Professor Leo Sullivan (Ray Watson) takes an interest in the quirky couple and attempts to offer sage advice. Ray may or may not get back in the game before wedding bells start to chime, but June isn't going to give him a chance to drop out.
