A Bit Wet

I confess that I enjoy The Collegians series of films very much. There are around eight or nine kicking around amongst collectors and, while they vary in quality, all are a fun watch. The series basically follows Ed Benson (George Lewis) through his four years at Calford, and each of the 44 episodes see him up against his nemesis, Don Trent, and trying to win over his sweetheart, June Maxwell.

Splashing Through is no exception to this rule, but lacks the sense of fun that most other surviving entries in the series deliver. As with most episodes, the story centres around a sporting event, in this case various water sports, and Benson even finds himself in jail at one point. The print in circulation sadly has French intertitles, and so the word-play often used in the series was no doubt missed by my rudimentary knowledge of French. That said, it's not needed to follow the plot. The ending was also rather different from the other episodes, which normally end with the coach delivering a short speech (via intertitles) to camera. Whether that was missing from this print, simply didn't happen in this episode, or whether a new ending was included for overseas audiences is unclear. While it's worth watching, this episode is ultimately a bit of a damp squib, and certainly not the one to judge the series on.
