Winter Carnival is a 1939 comedy-drama film directed by Charles Reisner starring Ann Sheridan, Richard Carlson and Helen Parrish. Jill Baxter returns to her college for the annual Winter Carnival and fall in love with an old boyfriend.
Publicity-loving heiress Jill Baxter (Ann Sheridan) returns to Dartmouth College for its Winter Carnival. Years earlier, she had been named Queen of the Carnival. Now, after a divorce from her exotic husband, she revisits Hanover, New Hampshire and reunites with the boyfriend Richard Carlson, now a tweedy professor, that she had dumped for the husband. They flirt and re-find love on the ski slopes and at the parties of the celebration; meanwhile, her young sister hopes to be chosen as carnival queen, Jill's own title while at college.
