A women's track team is preparing for a big meet against a rival college, but the coach is having trouble getting her team ready. Norma, the team's star, is more interested in slipping out to meet her boyfriend than she is with getting ready for the meet, so Norma and the coach engage in a clash of wills. Written by
Daphne Pollard plays a character similar to the one she played in THE CAMPUS VAMP--a short and rather manly young lady who has a lot of spunk, but not much else. Carole Lombard, who was also in THE CAMPUS VAMP, plays a star athlete who has very little interest in working hard and is a bit selfish--such as losing a race because she took time in the middle of the race to powder her nose. Despite her being a bit of a jerk, everything, naturally, works out in the end.
This college comedy is very broad in its comedy--not just the powder puff gag, but also featuring a very overweight Madalynne Field. Miss Field is obviously NOT a real athlete and I think the purpose of having her in the film is laugh at a fat girl--not the most noble of story ideas. Still, the short is reasonably interesting despite the quality of the humor and selfishness of Lombard's character. A decent time-passer.
