Trivia

The cast includes members of the 1928 and 1929 All-American football teams. The "Stuart Erwin" who plays Brown of Harvard is a football player, not the actor of the same name; Ray Montgomery is also a football player, and not the actor of the same name. See more »

Crazy Credits

Joe E. Brown's character is called "Yates" in the credits, but is always referred to as Speed Hanson in the dialogue. Similarly, Sumner Getchell is billed as "Whiskers" but is called only Ned, and George Irving is credited as "College Professor," but is actually President Sheffield of the college. See more »

Wild Bill Picks Up the Football, Joe E. Brown Scores
22 October 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Along with the extraordinary output of William Wellman -- "Public Enemy, "Wings," "Wild Boys on the Road," "A Star is Born" and so forth -- there are a number of fairly ordinary entertainment films such as the studio would have wanted made. "Eleven Men and a Girl" -- which is the title I saw it under -- is one of them, a college football comedy played by Joan Bennett, Joe E. Brown and a squad of non-acting football players drawn from the ranks of the top teams of the two previous seasons. There are several visual touches that drive this above the purely ordinary, such as a graph of a football field, with positions indicated, each marked by a photo of the heroine (Bennett), whose gentle scheme is to get all of the fellas to believe that they have a sweetheart in her order to pump them up to greatness, as per George Ade's play "The College Widow," already filmed twice before. As the camera moves along the photos, cutaways are used to show the boys practicing hard, striving to make their game better. The film is dominated, however, by rubber-faced comedian Joe E. Brown, and this picture was important in establishing his popularity among film goers, although he would make better ones. Brown's trademark yowl is perhaps too much in evidence in the course of this picture, but audiences got the gag, and it was a sound-specific gag, important in 1930. Drawbacks, however, include Bennett's under-baked performance and those of the football players who prove that, in 1930 as now, the vast majority of footballers cannot act, despite whatever acumen they may have on the gridiron. For Wellman, this project may have just been something to get out of the way so that he could start work on "Public Enemy," but the film is at its best when he decides to linger on a detail; otherwise, it could have been a two-reeler.
