Co-ed beauties making whoopee. Catchy song hits. New dances. And the "Boop-Boopa-Boop" girl, Helen Kane, cooing romance. You'll roll off your seat laughing. (Print Ad- St. Paris News-Dispatch,((St. Paris, Ohio)) 14 November 1929)
Stanley Smith is an obscure actor today, but in 1933 he was to take Dick Powell's role in Footlight Parade when Dick got sick with pneumonia. When Dick got well, Stan was out, and he never amounted to much. Judging by his performance in this film, I can see why. He reminds me of Lawrence Gray, who was adequate but lacked that something special that made audiences want to see him again.
The film also stars Nancy Carroll who was quite beautiful, Helen Kane who won me over with her cute voice and silly antics (she is introduced sitting in a tree shooting the man she loves), and Jack Oakie who is quite attractive here in this early part, and brimming over with the personality that made him famous. The scenes are incredibly beautiful, mostly set on a college campus, and the music is fun but none of it is very memorable, except for "Alma Mammy" which turns the alma mater into a jazzy Jolson-style number.
This college romp was screened at Cinevent in 2012.
