Wealthy Brice Wayne enters West Point and, though he does well on the football field, angers fellow cadets with his arrogance. Disciplined by the coach he yells "To hell with the Corps!" which would have led to further discipline but for the intervention of his hero-worshipping roommate "Tex." He resigns anyway, but just before the big game returns to lead his team and reunite with Betty Channing, the hotel owner's daughter. Written by

His idea of Field Manuevers weren't military -- he thought they meant a petting party! While the other "kaydets" studied War, he studied Love. You'll certainly enjoy this rollicking story of romantic West Point, naturally filmed at the U.S. Military Academy!
According to historian Anthony Slide, William Bakewell's mother accompanied him to the location in New York. This was paid for by the studio at the behest of Bakewell's agent, who had heard that the star of the film, William Haines, was gay. The fear was that Haines would corrupt Bakewell if the latter's parent was on the set. Incidentally, Mrs. Bakewell had to be told what a homosexual was by her son's agent. See more »
Was struck at how even the acting was throughout. William Haines had an acting range that is wonderful for silent film. Not over the edge. There are moments where the camera work is most excellent, and combined with the story, like when he is waiting to see the Superintendent, very well done.
Thoroughly enjoyed the flick.
