Storyline

John Randall is an Army cadet at West Point. His younger brother Paul is a midshipman at the Naval Academy. John contrives to help Paul's timid romantic interest in Nancy Wayne by pretending to be interested in her himself. Paul, however, takes offense, and determines to beat his brother in the Army-Navy football game on purely personal grounds. Meanwhile, Paul and fellow midshipman Albert Price are hazed and tormented by upperclassmen. Written by Jim Beaver <jumblejim@prodigy.net>

badly acted,hokey,early John Ford talkie,location shoot
25 September 1999 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Bad performances by George O Brian and William Janney as rival brothers who end up playing the big Army-Navy football game against each other. Steppin Fetchit is given a lot of screen time and his performance is embarrassing and racist by today's standards, but he might make you smile occasionally even while you wince;he is very charismatic.John Wayne has a few brief scenes as one of a trio of cadets who haze (very mildly) the hero.The best parts of the movie are the unusually crisp location filming of the real Annapolis circa 1929. The big football game is unexciting and has no surprises. There is one good performance by Frank Albertson whose spirited portrayal of the callow roommate who talks back to his C.O. is the film's highlight.No real John Ford touches in this programmer.
