Storyline

Jim Fowler is Western University's football hero and is constantly besieged by reporters. Jim's father Ezra comes to visit him and becomes reacquainted with an old Western football chum, Mr. Chandler, who happens to be the father of Jim's girlfriend Joan. Jim keeps his roommate, Andy, busy by sending him to collect money on their laundry concessions business, even though Andy is desperately trying to meet his girlfriend Thelma, who has just come for a visit. When the coach tells Chandler and Fowler that Jim is nervous and erratic, Chandler invites Jim to spend the night before the big game at his home. After-dinner conversation reveals that Jim sees football as merely a business, and feels devalued by his popularity because he thinks people are only interested in him because of football, not for who he is. Joan is disillusioned that Jim treats football as a racket, and the fathers are disappointed because they sincerely love the game. Later, Joan tries to prove her sincere love for ...

Another "Big College Football Game" movie?
30 March 2018 | by gcube1942See all my reviews

Yes, this is yet another entry in the seemingly endless "big game" genre. But at least we have it and the stars all do good jobs. Sort of surprising to see MGM biggies Leila Hyams and Robert Young in a Universal Studios production, what, Thalberg had no work for them? Ultra-blondes Hyams, Mary Carlisle, and Lucille Lund are all gorgeous but as usual, brunette Mary Doran is riveting in her patented seductive way. She should have been a much bigger star. I rated this higher than it really deserves but it is well worth watching.
