Sylvia Sidney was a fine actress who did a whole lot of good films in her career as a leading lady and then in her later years as a portrayer of old Jewish dowagers. But I'm sure she'd like to forget this one of a young jazz age college girl who gets pregnant with the foreseeable consequences given the mores of 1931.

However this affords an opportunity to see a young Bing Crosby with the trio that he was a member of with the Paul Whiteman Orchestra, the Rhythm Boys. The other members of the trio are Harry Barris and Al Rinker. They play at a fraternity house party in the first 10 minutes of the film.

Shortly after this, Bing went out on his own and the rest they say, is history.
