Shoreham College football star Richard Barthelmess (as Jack Hamill) specializes in "The Drop Kick". At home, Mr. Barthelmess is admired by pretty hometown girl Barbara Kent (as Cecily Graves). At school, the player is pursued by vamp Dorothy Revier (as Eunice Hathaway). Ms. Revier is a newlywed, but doesn't let it "cramp her style". She used to date Barthelmess, before she married his best friend, and coach, Eugene Strong (as Brad Hathaway). Mr. Strong has a difficult time balancing his budget. Soon, Barthelmess' college career is threatened by an unexpected shooting…

Barthelmess gives it the old college try, but "The Drop Kick" doesn't score. It's odd that this routine, and not very credible, film was released between "The Noose" and "The Patent Leather Kid", two films which brought Barthelmess Academy Award consideration. The football scenes are okay; but, the visual highlight is the "windmill dance" at the gymnasium. Revier, as the coach's wife, is the most interesting player. John Wayne appears inauspiciously, as an extra. "Wild" Bill Elliott is more noteworthy, making a forward play, at the dance.

**** The Drop Kick (9/25/27) Millard Webb ~ Richard Barthelmess, Dorothy Revier, Barbara Kent
