Goofs

During the opening credits, as the writing credits (second panel) are displayed, somebody wearing a hat ducked down and walked in front of the camera. (This may have been a common practice at the time.) But the person did not duck down far enough, and the top of the hat is just visible as it moves from left to right across the bottom edge of the frame. See more »

Marion Davies the Winner
15 July 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Another terrific comedy for Marion Davies. Interesting plot has Davies go off to college where she joins the basketball team to be near the coach, Johnny Mack Brown. She instantly makes a rival of Jane Winton, who's also interested in Brown. Davies (in a William Haines sort of role) refuses to play with Winton and after being chided quits the team rather than play with Winton.

The team begins to lose, to the delight of Davies, and as the "big game" approaches she hears the students razzing her at a pep rally. Davies swallows her pride and re-joins the team but the girls won't play with her. During the half-time Brown tries to gets the girls to make up. Davies admits she's been a cluck and all is forgiven.

Interesting role-reversal for 1927 with the women's basketball team seemingly the idol of the co-ed campus (no men's team is mentioned). Davies and Winton spar over the love interest (Brown). Davies does her usual great comedic work here but also has an incredibly physical role. That's really MARION DAVIES playing basketball: running, shooting baskets, reaching for toss-ups. Very impressive and very funny film.

Among the students are Joel McCrea and of all people, Lou Costello!
