Tyrone Power was still struggling as a contract player for 20th Century Fox when he appeared in a very small role in Girls' Dormitory. He is only seen at the end of the film, which was a romantic vehicle for Simone Simon, an attractive French star, favored by Darryl F. Zanuck. Zanuck enlisted other familiar names for the movie, Herbert Marshall and Ruth Chatterton, to help at the boxoffice since, at this point, Simone Simon was new to American audiences. While Power had only a very small role in Girls' Dormitory, it was enough to bring him a certain amount of notice. When asked what they liked best about the film, fans commented they liked most "that guy in the last scene". Zanuck began to take notice, though he still wasn't convinced of Power's star potential. In just a few short months, though, things would be changing at Fox studios.
