Have you ever seen the college from here? It's beautiful isn't it? Have you ever thought why it's there? Fifty or sixty years ago, a great woman suffered and slaved to build it.

The "It" Girl's first talkie doesn't quite have "It"
Clara Bow's first talkie demonstrates that it was not her voice or lack of talent which torpedoed her career in the very early 1930s, though she is not as winning here as in some of her silents (see IT). A group of slutty sorority sisters set their caps for new professor Fredric March (eerily similar to the plot of a German film which played US drive-ins in the 70s as SMARTY PANTS). Do you think he'll end up with one of the supporting players or with the femme lead?
A bit on the hokey side, and despite the come-on title, it doesn't even have a WILD PARTY. Bow looks slightly mature for a college girl, but check out Jack Oakie as a frat rat. To paraphrase Bluto, he looks like about 27 years of college shot to hell. More a curio than a classic, but tech credits are OK and the film is quite limber, under Dorothy Arzner's direction, for a 1929 talkie. For Bow at her most appealing, you still have to turn to silent films (see IT, again).
