This is a clip from an old movie that includes a rendition of I'm A Rambling Wreck from Georgia Tech. They don't start in on "I'm A Ramblin' Wreck" until about the 1:25 mark. The first half of this medley is the Maine Stein Song, the fight song of the University of Maine Black Bears.

This clip is from the 1947 ten minute movie short called "Let's Sing A College Song" from Universal's "Sing and Be Happy" series of audience participation sing-a-longs. The singing group is The Gordonaires of Fred Waring's Pennsylvanians and The University Chorus. This ten minute short has campus footage from five colleges and it was no coincidence that four of the five had football teams ranked high in the polls during the 1940s. The exception was the University of Maine but it was included because the producers wrongfully concluded that the audiences across America all knew the words to "The Stein Song." Most didn't, and still don't. Along with Ramblin' Wreck from Georgia Tech and the Maine Stein Song, the college fight songs include "Victory Song" from Notre Dame, "Peruna" from Southern Methodist University and "Hail to California" from the University of California.

Unfortunately, this is only the last 2:05 of this ten minute movie short. It is humorous that "Hell of an Engineer" becomes "Heck of of an Engineer" given this is from the 1940s.
