The Fair Co-Ed (1927), also known as The Varsity Girl, is a silent film comedy starring Marion Davies and released through MGM. The film was produced by William Randolph Hearst, through Cosmopolitan Productions and directed by Sam Wood.

The film is based on a 1909 play/musical comedy The Fair Co-Ed by George Ade which starred a young Elsie Janis, and opened on Broadway on February 1, 1909.[1]

The film survives today, supposedly in the MGM/UA archives, now controlled by Warner Brothers.[2]
