Storyline

A college football player (Joe E. Brown) persuades a beautiful young woman (Joan Bennett) to individually flirt with an entire team of All-American football players, in order to entice them over to her college. But the players get angry and threaten to walk out when they find out that they have been fooled, and they get even madder when they discover that she has actually fallen in love with one of their own teammates (James Hall).

Crazy Credits

Joe E. Brown's character is called "Yates" in the credits, but is always referred to as Speed Hanson in the dialogue. Similarly, Sumner Getchell is billed as "Whiskers" but is called only Ned, and George Irving is credited as "College Professor," but is actually President Sheffield of the college. See more »

Of interest, perhaps, to football historians
10 March 2015 | by (Upstate New York) – See all my reviews

Comedy star Joe E. Brown is given very little to do in a secondary role in this lame college football quickie. Twenty-year-old Joan Bennett stars as the university president's daughter who uses her charms to attract football talent to Upton in order to beat the school's rival and save her father's job. As a kind of gimmick, the cast includes several real-life collegiate football stars, but seen eighty-plus years later all that remains is amateur acting in a weak script (although admittedly I'm more of a baseball guy). Doughy leading man James Hall stands out like a sore thumb as the "star quarterback" among a roster of actual athletes.
